“My husband and I were sick of frying grilled cheeses on the stove because you have so many pieces of bread to use, and you have to stand there for a long time if you feed up to six people like we do. So we came up with this idea.” - by Michelle
Original recipe yields 9 servings
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- Butter one side of 9 slices of bread, and place butter-side down on a baking sheet. Arrange cheese on each slice of bread. Spread butter on 9 remaining slices of bread, and place them buttered-side up on top of the cheese.
- Bake in preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Flip the sandwiches, and bake an additional 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown.

"Okay, I felt silly looking at a recipe for grilled cheese sandwiches, but I am glad I did. I also felt silly on how long it took me to get this right, LOL. I did not know that the sandwich would cook ..." See moreon the bottom first. So, the first time I cooked them, I kept waiting for the top to turn golden brown, so the bottom burnt. The second time I flipped them when the bottom was cooked, and cooked the other side for the same amount of time. So, the bottom burned. The third time was a charm :-) I flipped when the bottom was done and checked the sandwiches after 2-3 additional minutes. Perfect!! The total cooking time is 6-8 minutes. If you cook the total time that the recipe says, you might end up with burned bread as I did. These are great. Can make many many at a time and they are not greasy. So, I am slow at learning, but these are great!! Thanks for the recipe!! I will repeat many times!!!"
"In my family, we've been making grilled cheese sandwiches in the oven for as long as I can remember. I had never had them any other way until high school. We don't bake them as in this recipe, though..." See more -- we put them under the broiler. If you do it this way, however, watch them closely because they cook _fast_. Some tips: Where there is butter, the bread will take longer to cook. This means, for best results, put the most butter around the crust and little to none in the middle. Done that way, the crust won't burn before the sandwich is ready. Also, if using a thick slice of cheese, or a pair of american singles, you might want to melt the cheese with the sandwich open-faced before closing it, buttering and baking/broiling as indicated. I find that the cheese sometimes doesn't get melted completely otherwise. I have had grilled cheese sandwiches made the "traditional" way many times, though I grew up on them this way. To me, there is no comparison; the oven gives a nice, crispy texture that I have been unable to duplicate any other way."
