Simple Gluten Free Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Recipe Yields 4 Servings

8 (1/2-inch thick) slices gluten free sandwich bread made with Tuscany Blend
12 ounces Monterey jack, Cheddar, Gruyere, or Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Optional add ins
sliced tomato
sliced pickles
sautéed Onions
cold cuts
grilled veggies

Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Place 4 slices of gluten free sandwich bread on a cutting board and generously butter the top sides of each slice. Melt another tablespoon of the butter in the skillet and swirl around to coat the pan.

Lay 2 slices of bread, buttered side down, in the skillet. Put a few slices of the cheese on the bread. If you are adding extras, lay them on top of the cheese and cover with a few more slices of cheese. Top with 2 of the remaining slices of bread, placed buttered-side up. Cook, without pressing, until the bread browns and the cheese is slightly melted, about 5 minutes. Turn the sandwiches with a spatula and add a small chunk of butter to the pan. Cook slowly, on medium-low heat until the cheese is melted completely and both sides are crusty and golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Repeat with the other 2 sandwiches. Serve simply or dip in marinara sauce.
