I then put the mayo on the other (up) side, and continued cooking on medium-low, watching closely so as not to burn. After turning, it came out perfect - golden brown on the outside, with nice gooey melted cheese, on the inside.
I use a #9 griddle on med-low and tent my grilled cheeses with a c-8 glass lid (fits perfectly). I have found that tenting allows me to cook a little slower, decreasing the risk of burning the bread while at the same time ensuring the cheese melts all the way through without having to use a secondary heat source.
