Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are a staple that everyone should know how to make. And there are so many variations to the sandwich, you can truly make it your own.
We have tried with a few different kinds of cheese, and my favorite has always been muenster cheese, with a regular whole wheat bread. We started getting the Muenster cheese more often lately because the boys will eat it, and we like it for sandwiches.
You can change it up with different types of bread, other cheeses, or even add some meat and it becomes something totally different. Justin actually used to make his in a different method than I do, but this is how my dad taught me and how Justin now makes them too.
This recipe is for two sandwiches, but it’s very easy to make more at the same time. Heat a flat pan over medium heat. Grab two slices of bread per each sandwich you plan to make and butter one side of each slice. For each sandwich, place one slice of bread, butter side down, on the warm pan then add a slice of cheese on the bread.
Cover the cheese with the other slice of bread, butter side up, to make your sandwich.
Cook for about 3-5 minutes, then flip carefully so the sandwich doesn’t fall apart. Cook the other side for about 5 minutes as well.
If you like your bread more toasted, then cook a little longer on each side as desired.
