Recipe: Grilled cheese Sandwich w/Variations

A perennial favorite: soft melted cheese and pressed, buttery toast.

Makes 1 sandwich

2 slices Cheddar, American or Swiss cheese
2 slices white bread
2 T butter

Put the cheese between the slices of bread. Heat 1 T of the butter in a skillet or grill and when it is melted add the sandwich. Gently press down with a spatula once or twice during the grilling. When one side is golden, add the remaining tablespoon of butter, turn the sandwich over, and brown.

Grilled Cheese w/ Bacon

Fry 3 slices bacon until cooked but not crisp. Pat dry of excess fat, add on top of the cheese, and grill as directed.

Grilled Cheese w/Ham

Put 2 thin slices of ham on the cheese and grill as directed. Serve with sweet pickle.
