Yield – 4 sandwiches
Prep & Cook Time – 10 minutes
8 slices sandwich bread
6 Tbsp softened butter
4 Tbsp mayonnaise

Preheat the skillet and melt 2 Tbsp butter.
Butter the outsides of all slices of bread. Add mayonnaise to the insides of each piece of bread.
Place 1 slice of bread into the melted butter. Carefully add 2 slices of cheese for each cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top, butter side up.
“Press, flip, and press.”
Grill about 1-2 minutes on both sides, until browned and cheese has melted.
