I made a quick easy meal of Grilled American cheese and Swiss cheese sandwiches and lentil soup (no picture of soup).

I really enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches but try to limit my consumption to 1 to 2 sandwiches fried in butter for breakfast once or twice per month. My fav contains cheddar or Swiss, thinly sliced onion, and a thin slice of ham with the Swiss.
It's a tricky proposition to get them golden brown with the cheese well melted without having the cheese ooze out on to the grilling surface.
The process seems to benefit from the judicious use of a griddle press-

I didn't press these. I got them nicely colored than lowered the heat a bit and flipped several times. Came out nice and "gooey". LOL

I have a rectangle press with ridges (not smooth like the new ones) and a wood handle. The wood is starting to discolor. But I have been looking at the newer ones with the curly handle.

Heres a picture of the one I have.

Looks good. I like them because they seem to reduce and make for more consistent cooking times. I cover mine with some aluminum foil to reduce need for cleanup.
