LAY bread on counter. Butter one side of each slice. Turn over one slice and sprinkle with cheese. Top with second slice of bread, butter side up.
HEAT a small non-stick frying pan over medium. When hot, add sandwich. Cook until bread is deep golden brown on both sides and cheese starts to melt, about 2 min per side. Reduce heat to medium-low if sandwich browns before cheese starts to melt. Using a spatula, remove sandwich from pan. Slice in half before serving.
