non-stick spray for pan
2 slices of your favorite bread
non-dairy butter (I like Earth Balance)
2 slices Rice Cheddar Flavor cheese singles (Galaxy Nutritional Foods brand)
1 heaping TBL of Daiya Mozzarella shredded cheese

Butter one side of each piece of bread. Heat pan and lightly coat with a non-stick spray. Lay 1 piece of buttered bread in pan, butter side down, lay on 2 cheese singles and sprinkle on Daiya mozzarella, then top with remaining piece of bread, butter side facing up.

Cover and fry over medium to high heat for 3-4 minutes. Check the underside and flip over once golden brown. Repeat on uncooked side until golden brown.
