Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I am so excited..... we can have grilled cheese sandwiches..... as long as we just call them cheese sandwiches and toast them in the oven.
From Mrs. Beeton's Dictionary of Every-day Cookery
Ingredients - Slices of brown bread and butter, thin slices of cheese.
Mode - Cut from a nice fat Cheshire or any good rich cheese some slices about inch thick and place them between some slices of brown bread and butter like sandwiches. Place them on a plate in the oven and when the bread is toasted serve on a napkin very hot and very quickly.
Time - 10 minutes in a brisk oven.
Average cost l d each sandwich Sufficient Allow a sandwich for each person.
Seasonable at any time."
