How to Make Crispy Corned Beef Melts


  1. Spread 1/2 Tbsp. butter on each slice of bread. Place 4 slices of bread, butter side down on a cookie sheet.
  2. Top each piece evenly with corned beef and top with 2 slices of cheese then top sandwiches with remaining bread, butter side up.
  3. Broil on high until cheese melts and bread is toasted, about 4 minutes per side in my oven. Flip and toast bottom side. Remove from oven.
