  • Set your oven to broil.

  • Then flip over the buttered slices. Leave one slice to the side and top the other slice with tons of cheese then both slices together butter side up with cheese in between!
  • Heat up a griddle or frying pan then fry your grilled cheese on both sides until golden brown and cheese is melting.
