  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, sliced into 8 slices
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
  • 3 cups mild cheddar cheese, grated and divided
  • 3 cups white cheddar cheese, grated and divided


  1. Butter slices of bread on both sides.

  2. In a pan over low heat, add a slice of bread, 1/2 cup of both kinds of cheese, and top with another slice of bread.

  3. Cook over low heat about 3 minutes on each side, using a weight to hold the sandwich down.

  4. Remove the sandwich from the pan.

  5. Grate more cheese to add to the pan (about 1/8 cup of each kind of cheese per side) and set the sandwich back down on top of the cheese.

  6. Slowly remove from the pan creating a crispy cheese crust.

  7. Repeat with the other side.
