  • Preheat oven to 450˚F.
  • Lightly butter one side of each slice of bread.
  • Arrange bread slices, buttered side down, on a large baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl combine mayonnaise and dijon mustard; mix until incorporated.
  • Spread the mayo mixture over bread. Add more, if you like.
  • Place 2 slices of cheese on each slice of bread.
  • Sandwich the breads together - you should have 4 sandwiches.
  • Pop them in the oven for 4 minutes; flip and continue to cook for 3 to 4 more minutes, or until golden brown and cheese is melty.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a cutting board.
  • Cut each sandwich in half and serve.
