If you use thinner, presliced sandwich bread, you will need to reduce the amount of cheese and butter in the sandwich. Instead, use 1 1/2 ounces of cheese per sandwich (using a single layer of cheese) and coat the outer sides of the bread with a little less butter.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large cast-iron or heavy metal skillet over medium-low heat. Place two slices of bread on a work surface, and cover each with a layer of Monterey Jack and a layer of cheddar cheese; top with the remaining slices of bread. Generously butter both outer sides of the sandwiches, spreading butter all the way to the edges of the bread.

  • Place the sandwiches in the skillet, and press down only lightly with the back of a spatula. Cook until golden brown on each side, and the cheese has completely melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Cut in half lengthwise, and serve immediately.
