Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 slice(s) white peasant bread or whole wheat sourdough
  • 2 or 3 tablespoon(s) butter, at room temperature
  • 8 ounce(s) gruyere cheese, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounce(s) thinly sliced smoked ham
  • 2 to 4 tomatoes, thinly sliced



Spread one side of each bread slice with the butter. On a clean work surface, place 4 slices buttered-side down. Divide the cheese and ham among those 4 slices. Place the remaining 4 slices of bread on top, buttered-side up.

Heat a grill pan or a 12-inch skillet with a lid over medium heat until warm. Place the sandwiches in the skillet (in batches if necessary) and cook, covered, 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until cheese melts and bread is golden brown.

Cut each sandwich in half; slide in 1 or 2 tomato slices and serve hot.
