  • 4 slices bakery-style bread
  • 2 slices Velveeta
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 2 tablespoons spreadable butter


  1. Spread all the butter on one side of all the bread. Place on a tray.

  2. In a very large skillet or grill plate, place two pieces of bread, butter down, and begin to grill over medium heat. Add the Velveeta and American cheeses and the top bread slice, butter side up.

  3. Grill for 3-4 minutes on the first side, carefully checking for doneness with a spatula. When cooked on the first side, carefully flip. Cover with a large lid or a large baking tray for one minute to help melt the cheese. Remove the lid and continue to cook for a minute or two until the sandwiches reach the desired doneness. Serve immediately.
