Ham and cheese on toast (yawn), BUT tip: put toasted side IN

I saw this on the Food Network... They were featuring this place somewhere which was knocking out killer grilled cheeses of every possible variety. Well, one little secret was that they grilled the bread with butter on the flat-top first, then they put the slices on a pan butter side up, heaped on the cheese and threw that under the broiler to melt the cheese. When it came out, you had the nice soft un-grilled bread to bite into, but in the middle was all that crispy, buttery grilled goodness. I tried that, and I've been doing it that way ever since. For those of us who spent years waking after a bender with a tender palate from scarfing diner food at 2 AM, this has been a revelation.
