Knowing how to make great grilled cheese can turn a gray day into a great day! A warm, melty grilled cheese with a crisp butter outside and a gooey melted center is the ultimate comfort food.


  • 12 soft white sandwich slices
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup shredded or sliced cheddar cheese or American cheese slices


  1. Spread mayonnaise on one half of each slice of bread.
  2. Heat a large griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1 teaspoon of butter to the skillet for each sandwich. Place a slice of bread, mayonnaise side down, over the melted butter. Top with shredded cheese or sliced cheese and then another slice of bread, mayonnaise side up.
  3. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown on the outside. Cut in half diagonally to serve.
