Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Place 4 slices of bread on a cutting board and generously butter the top sides of each slice. Melt another tablespoon of the butter in the skillet; swirl around to coat the pan.
  • Lay 2 slices of bread, buttered side down, in the skillet. Put a few slices of the cheese on the bread. Lay the tomato, and/or ham on top of the cheese. Cover with a few more slices of cheese. Top with 2 of the remaining slices of bread, placed buttered-side up.
  • Cook, without pressing, until the bread browns and the cheese is slightly melted, about 5 minutes. Turn the sandwiches with a spatula and add a small piece of butter to the pan. Cook slowly, adjusting the heat as needed to melt the cheese completely before the sandwiches are brown, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Repeat with the other 2 sandwiches. Serve.

    I made this again. I didn't have really thick bread this time though. I layered a piece of Gruyere, a couple of slices of ham, sliced tomatoes, more ham and another slice of Gruyere. Cooked it in my cast iron skillet and used butter. I added a picture this time around and put a thread in IMI. 10/20/13

    Really delicious! I used Gruyere cheese and cooked it on my George Foreman grill. I had some spinach so I put that on top of the tomato. Very filling! Thank you. :)
