One of our favorite fast lunch or dinner meals is making grilled cheese sandwiches. The crunchy warm bread and the gooey melted cheese…it’s like a flavor explosion in your mouth.
Bakery bread is amazing but using home-baked bread is even better.
So we used bread slices from the Classic White Bread https://ourfunstuff.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/classic-white-bread/ we baked and made grilled cheese sandwiches.
Ingredients (Makes 2 sandwiches):
4 slices of bread
butter, preferably organic butter
Cheddar cheese, sliced
Note: Choose your favorite cheese. We like using Cheddar and Gouda.
1. Heat griddle.
2. Slightly butter the outside of the bread (This is the side that will go on the griddle. If you have OCD like I do, you want to make sure to not confuse sides, otherwise the bread slices won’t align.)
3. Slice cheese.
4. With griddle warm and on low heat, place one bread slice (buttered side down) on the griddle. Layer the cheese on the bread slice and cover with other bread slice (buttered side up). Repeat for other sandwich.
5. Allow the cheese to melt, while carefully watching that the bread doesn’t burn. Turn the sandwich over to cook other bread slice, until both of the bread slices are golden brown.
6. Enjoy with soup, such as tomato soup or roasted red pepper soup.
Note: Can be made in non-stick pan, if you do not own a griddle.
