Recipe: Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This is one of my favorite snacks and now Joaqui too. It's very easy and simple to prepare. You can also do this on a skillet, but I prefer the stove top grill because I like the grill marks it makes on the bread.

4 slices square bread
4 tbsp butter
2 slices precut cheese (should be the same size as the bread) or enough cheese slices cut to fit the bread

  1. With serrated knife, trim crusts from the bread. If you wish, you may leave the crust on.
  2. Spread butter on one side of each of the bread slices. Top each with another slice of bread, buttered side facing outward.
  3. Heat skillet over medium heat for one minute. Put a sandwich on skillet, buttered side down. With a heatproof spatula or pancake turner, press the sandwich down so it flattens a little. This also helps melt the cheese. Let sandwich heat one to two minutes or until bottom side becomes a golden brown.
  4. Turn bread over so that the top side becomes the bottom. Heat another one to two minutes. Remove from the skillet and transfer to a clean plate. Slice into two triangles. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
