Traditionally, when served in a restaurant, diner or greasy spoon, The Grilled Cheese sandwich would have been cooked on a “Flat-top Grill “. Most folks don’t have one of these at home so the frying pan is the go to, the effect is exactly the same.

Just like how my steamed hams are always grilled.
