1 tbsp non-dairy butter spread, such as Earth Balance
1/2 cup or so Daiya cheddar style shreds
cooking oil spray
Start heating a no-stick frying pan on medium. Get your two slices of bread ready, and spread the Earth Balance spread on one side of each of the pieces of bread.
Turn the bread so the buttery side is down. Sprinkle the Daiya cheddar slices on one of the pieces of bread.
Spray a bit of canola oil on the pan before putting the sandwich into the pan. Put the other slice of bread on top of the cheese to close up the sandwich. Hold the sandwich carefully as you transfer it to the pan, to keep the shreds from slipping out. Let the sandwich cook on one side until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Press down with a spatula on top of the sandwich once or twice during the cooking.
Slide the spatula underneath the bottom of the sandwich to turn, using your other hand on top of the bread to keep it together. Carefully turn it over to cook the other side, takes about 3 to 4 more minutes. Look at the side to see the cheese is melting to know it’s about done. If the top hasn’t browned to your liking, turn it over to cook for another minute or two. When the bread is nicely browned on both sides and the cheese is melted, you are ready to put the grilled cheese on a plate and enjoy!
