  • Mix together the honey and vinegar in a small bowl and stir in the strawberries. Set aside for the berries to macerate while you make the sandwiches.
  • Spread 1 teaspoon butter on 1 side of each slice of bread.
  • Place 1 slice of bread (butter side down) on a cutting board. Top each with 1 1/2 tablespoons strawberry preserves and 1 1/2 pieces of cheese. Place the remaining slice of bread on top (butter side up).
  • Grill the sandwiches in a large nonskillet (or on a griddle) over low to medium-low heat until golden on both sides.
  • To serve, transfer each sandwich to a plate and sprinkle on a dusting of powdered sugar if desired.
  • Serve the sandwiches hot, along with the macerated strawberries to spoon on top.


  • Instead of white American cheese, you can use Brie, Camembert, Monterey Jack, or goat cheese.
  • Swap out the strawberry preserves for any flavor preserves you like.
  • If you don't have a nonstick skillet or griddle, a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet also works well for grilled cheese.
  • Cook these sandwiches over low to medium-low heat so that the cheese melts as the outside browns. Otherwise, the outside can brown (or even burn) before the cheese is melted inside.
