  • 24 slices sandwich bread 
  • 18 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • Tomato soup, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  3. Brush half of the melted butter all over a 16”x12” rimmed sheet pan.
  4. Place 12 slices of the bread in a single layer across the buttered sheet pan creating three long rows of four slices each.
  5. Layer six slices of cheese across the top of each row of bread so the bread is covered in cheese slices.
  6. Place the remaining 12 slices of bread on top of the cheese creating 12 sandwiches total.
  7. Brush the top layer of bread with the remaining melted butter.
  8. Place another 16”x12” rimmed sheet pan, bottom side down, on top of sandwiches. Weight it down with a heavy cast iron skillet or oven-safe baking dish.
  9. Bake the sandwiches in the middle rack of the oven for 15 minutes.
  10. Remove the cast iron and the top sheet pan.
  11. Return the sandwiches to the oven to bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the tops of the sandwiches are golden brown.
