A pared-down version of a Good Eats pan-grilled cheese sandwich. And, of course, it's all about technique. The reviewers were crazy about this one.

Crispy parmesan crust and oozing cheddar filling! Ravings from here as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread each slice of bread on both sides with butter. Arrange four slices in large skillet and cook over medium heat until turning light golden, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle slices with the 1/2 cup Parmesan and, using a spatula, flip over.
  3. Sprinkle toasted sides of bread with 1 cup cheddar and cook until cheddar begins to melt and Parmesan begins to brown and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Once cheddar is melted, turn 2 of the slices onto the other two and press together to sandwich. Transfer to cutting board.
  5. Allow sandwiches to rest about 3 minutes, then cut in half and serve.
