Double Grilled Cheese Toast

1. Butter the Bread:

  • Spread 1 tablespoon of butter evenly over one side of each bread slice. This buttered side will be the exterior of your sandwich, giving it a golden and crispy finish.

2. Assemble the Sandwiches:

  • Lay two slices of bread on your work surface, buttered side down. Sprinkle a quarter of the cheese on each slice.
  • If you’re adding any optional ingredients, layer them on top of the cheese now.
  • Add another quarter of the cheese on top of your optional ingredients, or directly on the first layer of cheese if not adding anything.
  • Top with the remaining slices of bread, buttered side up, pressing down gently.

3. Cook the Sandwiches:

  • Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • Once hot, place the assembled sandwiches in the skillet. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on one side, or until the bread is golden brown and crispy.
  • Carefully flip the sandwiches over and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes on the other side, pressing down lightly with a spatula to ensure even cooking. The cheese should be fully melted, and both sides of the sandwich golden brown.

4. Serve:

  • Remove the sandwiches from the skillet and let them rest for a minute before cutting. This rest time allows the cheese to set slightly, making it easier to cut.
  • Slice the sandwiches in half or quarters and serve immediately while the cheese is hot and melty.


  • Cheese Selection: Use a mix of cheeses for the best flavor and texture. Cheddar provides sharpness, while mozzarella offers stretchiness.
  • Low and Slow: Cooking the sandwich over medium heat allows the cheese to melt fully without burning the bread. If you notice the bread browning too quickly, lower the heat.
  • Adding Flavors: Feel free to customize your grilled cheese with additional ingredients. Fresh herbs, a sprinkle of garlic powder, or a spread of pesto on the inside of the bread can add an extra flavor dimension.
  • Pressing Down: Using a panini press or simply pressing down with a spatula helps to ensure that all the cheese melts and integrates with the optional fillings.

Enjoy your Double Grilled Cheese Toast as a filling meal or a luxurious snack, perfect for when you need a little extra comfort and indulgence.
