I butter the bread with softened butter that I keep in the cupboard. I like using cheddar, provolone, swiss, etc... but also really like "processed American cheese food" and dip in catsup.

You guys are so lucky that you can do the butter! I have familial high cholesterol, so butter is out. I miss it so much because I believe that a good knob of butter makes EVERYTHING taste better and gives such great gloss and mouthfeel. Sigh. The Earth Balance, etc. products are okay, but definitely not the same. I've adjusted by spraying my pan with a butter flavored spray. I like a mix of muenster and jack cheese, and I add some chopped fire roasted chilies (yep, the canned kind) for my daughter. That and some homemade soup. Yummers.

Spread pats of butter on both slices of bread....drop it on a hot cast iron griddle...listen to it sizzle...move it around a little...flip it over...listen to it sizzle again till nice and brown ---- Like Extra Sharp cheddar...mixed with Pepper Jack sometimes...Mmmmm grilled pimento & cheese is good too!!!

The best grilled cheeses I have ever had were in the lots at Phish and Dead shows. I will never forget the one that was made on homemade bread, garden grown basil, fresh churned butter and garlic with heirloom tomato. One for $1.50 or three for $2.

I grew up with a waffle iron that had plates that fit inside, so we always had a sandwich press. If the butter wasn't soft enough to spread on the outside of the bread, I always melted it and then brushed it on. I still prefer the butter spread on the bread and then put into the sandwich press. [I have a waffle iron with plates, now, too. ]

I use anything but "American" cheese. Can't eat those processed slices for anything! Favorites are some variation of Swiss cheese, or Taleggio. Manchego makes a good grilled cheese, too.
