  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 oz) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 pieces good bread (and by good, we mean really, really good)
  • 2 to 3 ounces fontina, Gruyère, or raclette cheese, sliced or grated
  • Sea salt (optional)


  1. Heat a waffle iron.
  2. Butter both slices of bread on 1 side. Place 1 bread slice, butter side down, on the waffle iron. Layer on the cheese and top with the second slice of bread, butter side up. [Editor’s Note: Exactly how much cheese you use depends on how whopping your slices of bread. Don’t be greedy. More is not better in the case of a waffle iron grilled cheese, because it’ll just spill out the sides.] 
  3. Close the waffle iron, but don’t press it down, and let the sandwich cook for about 2 minutes, until the bread is golden brown and crisp at the edges. If you like your grilled cheese bordering on burnt, leave it in for up to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, if desired.
