Wash your hands with soap and water.
Use a pastry brush to spread one side of the 2 slices of bread with olive oil. Or, use a knife to spread with margarine or butter.
Lay 1 slice with buttered side down on a cutting board or other surface and top with a slice of cheese, followed by a tomato slice and ending with another cheese slice. Cover with second slide of bread, with olive oil or buttered side up.
Grill both sides of sandwiches on medium heat until golden brown and cheese starts to melt. Use a double-sided, hinged indoor grill, a panini press; a griddle or a frying pan.
