1. Melt 2 teaspoon butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. When the foaming subsides, add the mushrooms and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are nicely browned, 6 to 8 minutes.

3. Thinly butter the OUTSIDE of each slice of bread. Top inside of one of the slices of bread with the mushrooms. Sprinkle grated cheese over the mushrooms. Top with the remaining slices of bread, BUTTER SIDE OUT, to make sandwiches.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is heated, add the sandwiches and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, pressing the tops of the sandwiches often with a spatula, until the bottoms are browned nicely and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Flip the sandwiches. Cook pressing down on the sandwiches from time to time, until the second side is golden brown and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board, cut them in half, and serve immediately.
