DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a cast iron skillet (any heavy skillet) on medium high heat.
  • Assemble sandwich: spread mustard on 1 side of split bread, layer meat(s), cheese and then 2nd layer of meat if you want (1 layer is enough for me, but the boys in my family want 2 layers).
  • Put sandwich in warm skillet, press down hard with another pot or pan (I used another cast iron pan or a large can of beans as the weight). Cook on medium or medium-low for 3 minutes.
  • Flip over and cook for another 3 minutes with weight to press down.
  • Sandwich will be significantly thinner than when you started. Serve immediately.
