Grill Cheese Without Butter
- non stick skillet
- 2 slices of bread
- cheese slice
- Place a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Allow it to heat up while you prepare the sandwich.
- Take two slices of bread and layer your desired cheese slices on one of the slices. Add any optional fillings you like.
- Carefully transfer the sandwich to the preheated skillet, with the cheese side facing up.
- Let the sandwich cook for 2-3 minutes or until the bottom slice of bread turns golden brown and crispy.
- Using a spatula, carefully flip the sandwich to the other side. Continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the second side is golden brown and the cheese has melted.
- Once both sides are nicely browned and the cheese is melted, remove the sandwich from the skillet and transfer it to a plate. Allow it to cool for a moment before slicing it in half or into smaller pieces, if desired.
- Your butter-free grilled cheese sandwich is now ready to be enjoyed! Serve it with your favorite soup or enjoy it as a standalone snack.
