Quick Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2 thick slices of whole grain bread

1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

2 teaspoons chopped green onion

Unsalted butter

Mix the green onion into the grated cheese, and set aside

Melt a spoon of butter in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once melted, place a slice of bread into the skillet

Top the slice with the oniony cheese, and cover with the other slice of bread. Cover the skillet with a lid, and cook for a couple of minutes, or until the underside of the bread is golden.

Remove the sandwich from the skillet and add another spoon of butter to the skillet.

Once melted, carefully flip the other side of the sandwich against the buttered pan. Cover and cook until the underside of the bread is nice and golden, and the cheese is all melted. If the bread is browning before the cheese has melted, dial down the heat as necessary.

Remove the almost-finished sandwich with a spatula. Sprinkle a bit more grated cheese into the pan in a toast-sized shape, and flip the sandwich back over onto the cheese. Let it cook until you no longer hear any sizzle.

Take the sandwich out, cut into two pieces, and voila!
