Why did this happen?!

I made grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch...

But my grilled cheese stuck to the pan. It was all mangled. Luckily I was able to tell my son that I made him a special grilled cheese that had to be eaten with a fork and he was down for that. I just used the tomato soup as a sauce lol.

I buttered the bread...same amount I usually use...

This has never happened before. I'm not a fabulous cook but I can make the basics: spaghetti, grilled cheese, boxed mac & cheese (actually i can make that from scratch...pretty proud of that). Am I regressing? Will I lose my ability to make pasta from a box soon?

you're supposed to butter the pan, not the bread.

I always butter the bread and it comes out fine. :)

Did you spray the pan with non stick spray?

I always butter the bread and that never happens.
OP is it a non stick pan? It could be getting worn out.

Pan was too hot or has residual burnt on oil from a prior use

Did the cheese melt through? Mine sometimes does that. Maybe the pans non stick is wearing off..different bread?

I've done it both ways. It never makes a difference.

Did you use a non- stick pan? If so, check for scratches.
