How to Make a Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich

How to Make a Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Savor the classic comfort of a perfect grilled cheese sandwich with this easy recipe!

  • 2 slices of bread
  • Cheese of your choice (about 4 slices)
  • Unsalted butter (softened)


  • You can use cheddar, mozzarella, gouda, or any cheese you prefer.
  • Soften the butter by leaving it at room temperature before use.
  • Mozzarella cheese is recommended for that gooey, melty texture.


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat.
  2. Spread a generous amount of softened unsalted butter on one side of each bread slice. Make sure to cover the entire surface.
  3. Place one bread slice, buttered side down, into the heated skillet.
  4. Quickly layer your chosen cheese slices evenly over the bread slice in the pan. You can use a single type of cheese or mix different varieties for added flavor.
  5. Top the cheese with the second bread slice, buttered side up, to create a sandwich.
  6. Cook the sandwich on one side until it turns golden brown and the cheese starts to melt, usually 2-4 minutes. Use a spatula to gently press down on the sandwich.
  7. Carefully flip the sandwich using the spatula and cook the other side until it’s also golden brown and the cheese is completely melted, approximately 2-4 minutes more.
  8. Once both sides are perfectly golden and the cheese is gooey, remove the sandwich from the skillet.
  9. Allow it to cool for a minute to avoid burning your mouth, then slice it in half if you’d like.
  10. Serve your perfect grilled cheese sandwich while it’s hot and enjoy the gooey, cheesy delight!
  11. This classic comfort food is quick, easy, and always satisfying. Customize it with your favorite cheese varieties and enjoy!
