|Classic American Grilled Cheese|
4 slices white American cheese
8 slices country white bread
4 slices yellow American cheese
Salted butter, softened
Preheat pan to medium heat.To build the sandwich, butter one side of two slices of bread. On the un-buttered side of one of them, place one slice of white cheese and one of yellow cheese, and close with the un-buttered side of the other slice of bread facing in (yes, this can be a little messy). Repeat 3 more times so you have four sandwiches in all. Place in the pan. Cover with a metal bowl and let the sides turn golden brown, and then flip over cook other side. A couple of minutes on each side should do it.

4 TBSP. Butter
4 slice of bread

On one slice of bread, layer shredded Gouda, the roasted mushrooms and onions, then more gouda. (Layering this way ensures that the melty cheese will hold the sandwich together.) Salt and pepper to taste. Top with the other slice of bread. Lightly press together.In the melted butter place one sandwich down for one second, then gently flip it over to the other side.
