Yield: 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 Tbsps. butter, melted
  • 8 slices artisan bread, thickly sliced
  • 7-8 oz Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, sliced

Directions

  1. Using a pastry brush, butter each slice of bread on one side, and place 4 slices, buttered side down, on a work surface. Place on each of these slices of Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese. Top with the remaining 4 bread slices, buttered side up.
  2. Lightly butter and heat a griddle, heavy skillet or Panini press until hot. Place 2 sandwiches in the skillet and weight with another heavy pan or skillet. Brown slowly on one side for 2-3 minutes before turning, with a spatula, and grilling the other side until brown and cheese melts. It may be necessary to add a bit of butter to the skillet.
  3. Repeat with remaining two sandwiches. Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions:

  1. If you like, you may spread mayonnaise or mustard on the unbuttered sides of the bread.
  2. Add vertical slices of dill pickle, thinly sliced ripe medium-sized tomatoes or red onion rings for an extra punch of flavor.
  3. Use another cheese in place of the Cheddar or Monterrey Jack. Cheeses with good melting qualities will work best.
