Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

grilled cheese and tomato soup
Today, I am sharing not one, but TWO recipes that a perfect pairing. Gooey and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches along with a hot bowl of tomato soup.

This classic comfort food pairing instantly makes me think of home. Growing up, grilled cheeses were part of our weekly dinner routine. They make a quick and easy dinner when you are running between events, or you simply don't feel like cooking.

While this recipe varies from the grilled cheeses my father made when I was younger, this recipe matches a classic diner grilled cheese.

Check back later today for my dairy-free but creamy tomato soup!

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Makes two sandwiches

3 oz of cheddar cheese, shredded
4 slices of white sandwich bread
2 tablespoons melted butter

Divide the cheese evenly between two of the slices of bread. Cover the sandwiches with the other two pieces of bread.

Spread melted butter over one side of each sandwich. Heat a 12 inch pan over medium-low heat 

When the pan is hot, place the sandwiches (buttered-side down) on the pan. Reduce the heat to low. 

Butter the top side of the sandwiches using the melted butter.

When the bottom of the sandwiches are golden brown and crispy (approximately 5-10 minutes), flip the sandwiches. 

Again, wait for the bottom of the sandwiches to be golden brown and crispy. The cheese should be melted. 

Your grilled cheese sandwiches are now ready...enjoy!
