    After the cheese melts, take out the cheesed meat with the help of a spoon and put it on the warm buns. You can pour your favourite sauces on the buns as well. Mostly, people use mayonnaise in the sandwiches. However, you should keep in mind that it will make your sandwich quite heavy. You can also put a cheese slice on the meat after putting it on the buns instead of adding the cheese in the pan. Cover the sandwich and have it along with your favorite drink.
