Skillet Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Today's post posed quite a dilemma for me. I almost didn't do this post, but then I decided that this delicious sandwich was too good to pass up. Its such a simple sandwich to put together, which is why I had second thought about posting it, but the taste obviously won that battle. I couldn't help thinking of those that might be out there that haven't tried this sandwich before. I know I hadn't till a couple of weeks ago.

It so happened that early one evening, I was famished. I needed to eat something and I needed it at that very moment. I had just returned home from grocery shopping and didn't bother to pick up anything to munch on. I'm glad I didn't. Not eating junk food is always a good thing, isn't it? So there I stood, before my open refrigerator, staring blankly at what was on the shelves, willing for something to shout out and relieve those hunger pangs. And friends, its during those moments of almost delirious desperation, that I decided to try this sandwich out. It took me just a few minutes to make since theres no need to wait for the butter to soften or even grate the cheese, and when I tasted it, it was so much better than I could've ever imagined. It was pure bliss. Later that evening, I treated my husband with one and he asked for a second one after just taking a bite. Thats how good it was. This has become a favorite in my house. I hope you will try it out too.

What I like about this particular grilled sandwich is that you don't need any fancy equipment. Everyone has a skillet lying around in their kitchen, so this is a grilled sandwich that everyone can enjoy.


Skillet Grilled Cheese Sandwich
(Makes one sandwich, but you can easily make as many as you wish)

2 slices of sandwich bread
1 slice of cheese (you can use any variety you like)
A couple of tsp butter

Place the slice of cheese between two slices of bread.

Place a dollop of butter in a skillet over low to medium heat. You don't want the butter to burn.

Place the sandwich in the pan and let it brown off, uncovered till a little crisp.

Carefully turn the sandwich over, place a couple of smaller dollops of butter on the sides of the pan and lift the edges of the sandwich to help it under. Brown off that side of the sandwich as well.

Take off the heat. I cut it into two rectangular pieces, but you don't have to, cut them any way you like, if you want to cut it, or leave it whole.

Eat while its still hot.

Look at all that golden melted gooey goodness of the cheese.
