Take the other cast iron skillet and place it on top of the sandwich to press it. NOTE: Be sure to clean the bottom of the other skillet before placing it on the sandwich.

Let the bottom bagel toast in the pan for a minute or two.

Remove the top pan and flip the sandwich over. Replace the top pan and allow the sandwich to cook further, until cheese is melted.
