I love warm melted cheese. Especially when it's cloudy or raining outside...yum. Found this very simple recipe of classic grilled cheese sandwich by the oh-so-famous Martha Stewart. The steps and the ingredients are so simple you can make it right about now =) Not only it's simple but we can also call this a comfort food so you can have this and feel better afterward. I can even smell the cheese right now ...

Classic Grilled Cheese

(makes 2 sandwiches)

***The key to making a good grilled cheese sandwich lies in the heat of the cooking surface. A griddle or well-seasoned cast-iron skillet will produce equally delicious results.


  • 4 slices (1/2 inch thick) firm white sandwich bread
  • 1/4 pound cheddar cheese, sliced 1/3 inch thick
  • Unsalted butter, room temperature

1. Heat a griddle or large cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. Place two slices of bread on a clean work surface, and cover each with a layer of cheese; top with remaining bread slices, pressing gently to adhere. Generously butter both sides of each sandwich, spreading it all the way to the edges.

2. Place sandwiches on the griddle or in the skillet. Cook until golden brown on each side and the cheese has completely melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning once. Before removing from griddle, flip sandwiches to reheat first side, about 15 seconds. Cut each sandwich diagonally in half; serve immediately.
