Grilled Cheese Recipe

Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp. butter, softened and divided
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar

Directions

  1. Spread about 1 tbsp butter on one side of each slice of bread. On the other side, top each slice of bread with about ½ cup of shredded or sliced cheddar.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp butter on a nonstick skillet over medium heat. When butter has melted, add the two slices of bread, with butter side down.
  3. Cook until bread is golden and cheese is beginning to melt, 2 minutes.
  4. Turn over one slice on top of the other slice and continue to cook 30 seconds. Next, flip like a pancake and repeat cooking for the other side 1-2 min and until golden brown.

*Do not burn! Repeat for the second sandwich, wiping the skillet clean if necessary.
