    I added salt and dried basil. It was outstanding! I am not a big tomato lover so I was hesitant to try this but it made magic in the pan! Thank you Kittencal!

    Yum! I used marble jack cheese, since it's my favorite, but followed the rest of the directions exactly. This was a delicious sandwich and I'm sure to make it again! Thank you!

    I've been making a similar sandwich since I was a kid. I double the amount of cheese, though, and use mustard instead of mayo. There's just something I find off-putting about warmed mayo. Plus, I find mustard just blends better with melted cheese.

    Thanks Kittencal for posting. We made this for a quick , cozy lunch and it was delicious. Everyone wanted more than one sandwich. Instead of American we used cheddar and instead of putting the butter on both sides of the bread we put mayo on both sides (just family personal taste preference) reserving the butter for just the pan. Thinly sliced tomatoes are great and on some sandwiches we added some ham. Another winner! Enjoy! ChefDLH
