    2 slices Cheddar, American, or Swiss cheese

    Put the cheese between the slices of bread.
    Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a skillet or grill and when it is melted add the sandwich.

    When one side, is golden, add the remaining tablespoon of butter, turn the sandwich over, and brown.

    I really didn’t mind going to work but I really like it now that I am retired. Now I get to pack up and ‘gallivant’ all over the country when my wife decides that we need to travel.

    After 8 hours, I imagine it is cajun style.

    In the summertime, add a nice thick slice of Jersey tomato before puting the two halves together.

    You pathetic loser. There are so many people out of work
    Plus your ugly and repulsive. Go on a diet and get down to the gym. You disgust me.

    “That really grills my cheese.” I don’t know if that’s a bad thing or if it’s a good thing. The all purpose response – no matter what someone says about anything, just say “that really grills my cheese.” They won’t know if you agree with them or if you disagree with them. And even better, you might not even know yourself!
    Boy, that really grills my cheese."

    What I do is toast two slices of bread and then put a slice of cheese between them and microwave for about 12 seconds or so. No butter required, and they taste just fine. I’m also retired, for nearly 10 years.

    You really should add a slice of pepper jack to those options.

    Absolute best grilled cheese sandwich:

    Home made bread
    Slice of cheddar or sliced American
    Slice of pepper jack
    Ham or whatever other amendments you prefer

    Really good stuff.

    Thanks for the recipes. I’ve saved a few!
