Serves 4

Garden at the Cellar, the Cambridge gastropub, offers this grilled Vermont cheddar sandwich, made with Iggy’s Bread of the World pain de mie, which is a pullman loaf. Use any firm white bread.

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
8 slices firm white bread
6 ounces aged cheddar, cut into thin slices
1. Spread butter on one side of all the bread.

2. Over medium heat, heat 2 skillets. Place 2 slices of bread, buttered sides down, in each skillet. Add cheese. Cover with another slice of bread, buttered sides up.

3. Cook the sandwiches for 4 minutes or until bottoms are golden, pressing lightly with a metal spatula. Turn and continue cooking for 3 minutes, pressing lightly, or until the undersides are golden.
