  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 thick slices of Italian bread (any white bread/sourdough works too)
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, softened
  • 2 slices deli cheddar cheese


  1. First, butter the bread by spreading 1/2 tablespoon of butter on each side of both slices of bread.
  2. Next, place the cheddar cheese slices on top one slice of bread and then place the second piece of bread on top of the cheddar cheese. Set aside.
  3. Next, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil.
  4. When the olive oil is fragrant, add the grilled cheese to the pan and let it cook for 3-4 minutes over medium heat.
  5. Flip the grilled cheese and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes. The cheddar cheese should be completely melted before removing the grilled cheese from the pan.*
  6. Remove from the pan, cut in half and enjoy!
