Waffle-Iron Grilled Cheese
- 1 tablespoon butter, softened
- 2 slices good quality artisan bread or 2 slices pumpernickel bread, etc

- Heat a waffle iron. Butter the slices of bread. Place 1 slice butter side down on the waffle iron, layer on the cheese and top with the second bread slice, butter side up.
