Serves 2 | Prep Time | Cook Time 3 to 5


4 slices country-style bread, each 1/2 inch thick
Melted unsalted butter for brushing
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat an electric panini maker according to the manufacturers instructions.

Brush one side of each bread slice with melted butter.

Lay the slices, buttered side down, on a clean work surface.

Place 2 slices of cheese on each of 2 bread slices.

Top each with one of the other bread slices, buttered side up.

Place the sandwiches on the preheated panini maker and cook according to the manufacturers instructions until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board and cut in half.

Serve immediately.

Proof that simple can be sublime, these grilled cheese sandwiches are a snap to prepare using an electric panini maker. Theyre the perfect accompaniment to our Smoked Tomato Soup (see related recipe at right).
