It's chilly outside, warm and cozy inside the house and it just makes you want to have a good gourmet comfort food. This particular day I was craving me a good gooey grilled cheese sandwich with a side of warm herby tomato soup. So I'm going to take a good classic childhood meal and adult it using no canned goods here. This meal here is made with quality time and love that will sit comfortably in your belly. If you're feeling this comfy vibe, let's get right to it.

  2. Place the buttered side of the first bread onto a nonstick pan.
  3. Add a slice of sharp cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese on top and cover with lid for about 1-2 minutes or until the bottom of the bread is golden brown.
  4. Spread salted butter on the 2nd slice of bread and add it on top of the slices of cheese. Be sure to have the buttered side of the bread facing up.
  5. Use a spatula to flip the sandwich and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until golden with no lid cover at medium heat. (If the other side of the sandwich is golden brown but the cheese has not yet melted, flip the sandwich, cover the lid at low heat until the cheese melts.)
