  • 1 lb block medium cheddar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 slices old fashioned white bread


  • Shred the cheddar cheese (I use a box grater for this step). I usually grate a little over 1/4 cup for each sandwich. It’s up to your how much cheese you want to put.
  • Butter both outer sides of the bread with softened unsalted butter. I put a pretty generous layer on. Tip: If you forgot to soften your butter, you can just melt a few tablespoons of. butter on the stove and brush it on the bread with a pastry brush.
  • Place the bread in a pan heated to medium heat (buttered side down) and add the shredded cheese on top, then place the other slice of bread (buttered side up). Once the bread becomes golden in color, carefully flip the sandwich over and brown the other side (about 2-3 minutes per side)
  • Once the sandwich is done, slice it and serve with tomato basil soup.
