Grilled Cheese French Toast

I don't have many moments when I indulge in my thoughts of food decadence and there's a good reason for that. If I gave in to all of the ideas I have of food decadence, my jeans wouldn't fit anymore. But I had been thinking of this recipe for so long that I'll admit that if I had more than one piece of cheese in the fridge when I made this I would've used two. I can truly tell you that this was as good as I had been dreaming it would be. Yes, I dream about food....

Makes one serving
2 slices of bread, I used plain old white bread
sliced American cheese, the real stuff, I would use two slices, if I had them :)
2 eggs
butter for frying, about one tablespoon

No need for the butter yet, (we'll get to that in a minute). Just heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat until it's hot enough to grill the sandwich. Place the cheese between two slices of bread.

Break the eggs into a bowl that's large enough to dip the sandwich into.

Beat the eggs, just until they're blended. 

Grill the sandwich on each side and remove from the pan.

Turn the heat to medium low and now it's time to add the butter!

Coat the sandwich with the eggs on both sides.

Into the butter! Cook until the egg is done.

Then flip it over and cook on the other side. Make sure the egg has cooked through.

I didn't want anything on top of it, just me, the eggs, cheese and toast.

Excuse me while I have a moment with my breakfast...
