My Favorite Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Recipe from: Mary Filmore

unsalted butter
grated cheddar and Mozzarella cheese
canned or frozen green chile
flavorful bread such as Orowheat Healthnut Bread

Have the butter at room temperature so it will spread easily. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Grate the cheese you want to use. I prefer a mixture of longhorn cheddar (a mild cheddar) and Mozzarella. Grated cheese melts better. Frozen or canned chile will be softer than fresh. Drain the chile well. Toss the cheese in a bowl with green chile. Place the bread with the butter side down on a griddle. Pile the cheese and chile mixture on the bread making the layer as level as possible. Top with the second slice of bread. Let the bread cook slowly over medium low heat. After a few minutes flip the sandwich over. Let it cook a while and flip again. This turning of the bread means that both sides will be crisp. Keep turning it until the bread turns a rich golden brown and the cheese starts to ooze out. Cut diagonally and serve immediately.
