  2. Spread half of butter evenly on tops of sandwiches; place sandwiches on a hot griddle or skillet, buttered side down. Cook until bread is golden. Spread remaining butter evenly on ungrilled sides of sandwiches; turn carefully, and cook until bread is golden and cheese is slightly melted. Serve immediately.
