    Thanks for sharing. I have a different variation for doing this. I put 2 pieces of bread into 1 side of the toaster. That way both pieces of bread have 1 side that doesn't get toasted. When the toaster is done with them I LIGHTLY butter the toasted side of each piece of bread. Then place 1 of the slices buttered side down on the plate, add cheese, cover with the remaining piece of "bread" uncooked side down. My microwave only takes about 15 seconds to melt the cheese and not over do it, not quite as long as yours, and others may need to adjust the time to their microwave. Also, with my method, some toasters require that all the slots be filled and may require someone to make more than one grilled cheese at a time. Your method will work better than mine for people only wanting to make 1 grilled cheese, that have one of those toasters.

    The way you show this, your sandwich is actually a toasted cheese sandwich. I have made these before. It is better, if instead of putting the buttered sides inward against the cheese, you put the buttered sides outward away from the cheese and then microwave. This way it will more closely resemble a "grilled" cheese sandwich, because grilled cheeses are made that way.

    I know it will taste the same, but the look of it, and the feel of the buttered outsides against your fingers and inside your mouth while eating it, will enhance the whole experience mentally to make you feel more like you are eating a "grilled" cheese sandwich.
