A grilled cheese sandwich is a tasty snack that can be made easily and is not unhealthy at all. If you don’t know how to make one, don’t worry. Just follow the steps:


First you need to have all the ingredients for making a grilled cheese sandwich which includes butter, bread slices, and of course, cheese.
STEP 2: Get a frying pan. Put it on the stove and turn on the heat on medium. Let the pan get hot and while it warms up, slice the cheese into thin slices and get the bread. You should also put some water in the pan while heating and when the water boils up, pour it out of the pan and put your first sandwich on the pan.
STEP 3: Now you may use the butter. Either put the butter on the pan evenly or apply it on the outsides of both bread slices. Put the cheese slice on top of one bread slice and put the other bread slice on the cheese. Lower the heat and allow the cheese to melt.
STEP 4: Now wait for about 90 seconds, allowing the bread to get brown enough from one side. When it gets brown, flip it over to the other side and wait again for it to get brown.
STEP 5: Keep one thing in mind that the second side will not take 90 seconds. You wait 90 seconds and what you will get is a “half-burned sandwich”. So check the second side right after a few seconds. When it is done, take the sandwich out of the pan and serve it.

So this is how you make a grilled cheese sandwich. You can also use some additional toppings like onions, ham, mayonnaise etc. to make it even tastier. Also remember that it is not necessary that you have to wait for 90 seconds exactly. It depends on you that how you want the bread to be cooked. But just make sure that you don’t burn it and Good Luck with your sandwich.
