Good quality bread

Oka or good quality cheese slices


Sprinkle of chipotle pepper



Dill pickles



Butter both sides of slices of bread; add your favorite cheese and sprinkle the cheese with a small amount of chipotle pepper. Top with a second slice of bread.

Over medium heat, let the pan heat up for about 15 seconds, then glide the sandwich into the pan. Next, cover the pan with a lid - doing this helps evenly distribute the heat to the sandwich for optimum melting. When the underside of the sandwich is golden brown and the cheese is melting out the sides, turn over the sandwich and brown the other side over medium heat. The second side grills much faster than the first: 1 - 2 minutes.

Once the second side is crisp and golden, remove the sandwich from the pan, slice it and serve with some garlic dill pickles. The combination can't be beat!
