Basics: Good Old Cheese Sandwich

Print  Friendly and PDF
Hubby didn't want lunch today as he was going out for a business lunch. So I made myself something real simple and quick yet satisfying to the core. On a darn cold day like today, can there be anything more comforting than a cheese sandwich with some tomato soup to wash it down?
  • 2 slices Whole Wheat Bread( I used Arnold's)
  • 2 American Cheese Singles
  • 1/2 tbsp butter, at room temperature
  • Cast-iron Pan
  • Cast-iron Steak/Panini/Bacon Press
  • Start off by warming the tools.
  • Smear 1/2 the amount of butter on a slice of bread and place it on the pan, buttered-side down.
  • Top it with cheese slices.
  • Smear the remaining butter on the other slice,add to the top of cheese slices, buttered-side up and press it down with the steak press.
  • Cook on one-side for 2 minutes, flip and cook for 2 more minutes until the cheese gets all gooey and yummy.
  • Serve immediately with some tomato soup on the side.
