  • 4 slices sourdough or white bread
  • 4 tbsp. salted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar-jack cheese or 4 slices
  • 4 tomato slices patted dry
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese or 4 slices


  • Place the bread on a flat work surface. Spread 1 tablespoon of butter evenly over one side of each bread slice. Warm a skillet over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Layer each sandwich as follows: Slice of bread (butter side down), 1/2 cup shredded cheddar-jack, 2 tomato slices, 1/2 cup shredded provolone and slice of bread (butter side up).
  • Place the sandwiches onto the hot skillet. Cook on each side for approximately 3 to 4 minutes, or until the bottom layer of cheese begins to melt around the edges. Cut in half and serve!
