Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Ok...stop laughing at me for putting up my Grilled Cheese Sandwich recipe. I promise it is worth it! And besides! I was interviewed by Canadian Public Radio's Mike Enwright ( I think that is his name) on his "Morning" program about this recipe! Kid you not!


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 slices of American Cheese
  • Butter
  • Garlic Powder
  • Mustard
  • 1 Tomato sliced
  1. Heat a cast iron frying pan or griddle to hot. By hot I mean that a drop of water dances on the skillet when dropped on it. This is the important part that I didn't know Do not put any butter in the pan itself at this time.
  2. Put a little mustard on one slice of bread.  Lay the cheese slices on the bread and top with a tomato slice.  Put the bread together and dot one side with butter. Turn it over (this is the messy part) and do the same to the other side. Sprinkle garlic powder on this side.
  3. When the skillet has reached the right temperature, turn the garlic side into the pan.  Let it cook for about two to three minutes pressing with a spatula if you like squashed grilled cheese. Before you turn the sandwich over, sprinkle it with garlic powder. Let it cook on the other side about two minutes. You know if you like it golden or burnt so do it your way.

I like this with cream of tomato soup that has a bit of fresh basil and garlic in it.
