DIRECTIONS

  • Butter all the bread slices on one side only. Put them all, buttered side down, on a cutting board. Spread four of the slices with a thin layer of jam (about 2 teaspoons per slice). Spread the cheese on the other four slices. Pair the jam slices with the cheese slices.
  • Heat a large nonstick pan or griddle over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Put as many sandwiches as will fit in the pan or on the-griddle without crowding, cover and cook until the cheese has just begun to melt and the bread is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove the lid and turn the sandwiches, pressing each one firmly with a spatula to flatten it slightly. Cook the sandwiches uncovered until the bottom is golden brown, about 1 minute. Turn them once more and press with the spatula again to recrisp the bread, about 30 seconds. Cut the sandwiches in halves or quarters and serve immediately.
