  • Favorite bread
  • Favorite cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon butter for each sandwich melted optional
  • Turkey or ham optional


  • I like to melt my butter a bit and brush it on the outside of each slice, but it's probably not necessary, if you prefer to use a knife and spread unmelted butter on your bread.
  • After buttering, adding the cheese, and topping with more buttered bread, they are ready to go in the oven.
  • In a preheated 425 degree oven, bake on one side for around 6 minutes, checking though to get it to your preferred degree of "toastyness." Then carefully flip over and bake for another 3 minutes or so, again watching for the perfect "browness" for your taste.
