Learn how to make the best Grilled Cheese sandwich with a crisp, buttery exterior and gooey cheese center.
- 8 slices Texas toast , or thick sliced sandwich bread
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 4 slices medium cheddar cheese
- 4 slices Gouda cheese
- 4 slices Havarti cheese
Spread 1/2 Tbsp of butter on one side of each slice of bread.
Set a skillet over medium/low heat and place 2 slices of bread in the skillet with the butter-side-down.
Stack cheeses on one piece of toast: cheddar, havarti, then gouda. Once the breads are golden brown, closed the sandwich with the crisp sides on the outside.
Continue cooking until the bread is a rich golden brown, flipping once and press down lightly to help the bread stick to the cheese. Total cooking time should one 5-6 minutes. Keep the heat on medium low for the breads to toast slowly, giving your cheese a chance to fully melt and adhere to the bread.
Once you see the cheese has melted and breads are browned, remove to a plate and cut in half diagonally to serve. Repeat with the next sandwich.
