Grown-up Grilled Cheese
Grilled gruyere sandwiches are really really tasty! Make this a complete meal by serving it with hot tomato soup and/or adding sliced deli ham to the sandwich. Good quality cheese is essential for this dish! Feel free to also use an aged white chedder for this recipe!
Twelve 1/2-inch thick slices Brioche
8 to 10 ounces thinly sliced Gruyère (Roth Käse reserve Gruyère is a nice choice)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
Chips (i like sweet potato chips), or soup on the side!
Preheat your oven to 350°.
Lay 6 slices of bread on your work surface and divide the cheese among them. Top with the remaining pieces of bread and cut off crusts (optional).
Heat a skillet over medium heat.
Add 2 tablespoons butter and cook to brown the butter. Add half the sandwiches and cook until browned on the first side, about 1-1/2 minutes.
Flip the sandwiches and cook on the other side for another 30 to 45 seconds. Place on a sheet pan and spread 1 teaspoon of butter over the top and bottom of each sandwich. Repeat with the other sandwiches.
Put the baking sheet in the oven for 2-5 minutes. Remove from oven and slice sandwiches in half.
