Servings 2


  • 4 slices good sandwich bread (recipe on blog)
  • 40 g butter room temperature
  • 100 g cheese of your choice (I used edam-tilsit-emmental mix, but a cheddar or manchego would go nicely)
  • 100 g sliced mozzarella
  • salt


  • Cover one side of each slice with butter (10 g per slice). Smear it evenly up the edges.
  • Place 2 of the bread slices, with the smeared side down, on a cold non-stick pan. Turn up the heat to medium high.
  • Place 50 g of mixed cheese on each slice along with 50 g of mozzarella. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and cover with the other two bread slices, with the butter covered side facing up.
  • Grill for 3-4 minutes, until golden-brown, then flip and grill for further 3 more minutes.
  • Serve warm with some tomatoes, or salad of your choice.
