How to make the recipe
Make Grilled Cheese on a griddle or pan
Butter each bread slice on both the sides. Heat a pan and place 2 buttered bread slices on it.
Grill until golden. Flip the slice and place /spread the cheese on the hot bread. Sprinkle chili flakes & herbs, if you want.
Cover the bread with another slice with the hotter side over the cheese.
On a low to medium heat , grill it until golden and the cheese begin to melt. Halve the sandwiches and serve.
Make Cheese Sandwich in a Oven or Sandwich toaster
Start with your oven set to 450 F or 220 C. Or If using a sandwich toaster, preheat it.
Generously butter your bread and assemble your sandwiches, by placing the buttered side down on a baking sheet or a tray.
Place the cheese slices and add your spices or herbs of choice, if you want to. Cover with another bread slice, with the buttered side on top.
Place tray on the middle rack of your oven and toast until the bread begins to turn golden brown, about 3 to 5 mins. If you are using a OTG, it just takes about 3 to 4 mins.
Flip once with a wooden spatula and continue to grill until the cheese is visibly melted and your sandwich has developed an even, light brown color. This takes another 3 to 5 mins depending on your bread and oven.
Remove & let cool down on a wired rack before you cut, and enjoy hot!
In the Air fryer
Place the assembled sandwiches in the air fryer and air fry at 350F or 180 C for 5 mins. Do not air fry for too long, the edges turn hard and too crisp.
