Brennan’s Hearty Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Adapted By Brennan's 27 Sep 2018

Serving Size: Serves 4


8 slices sourdough bread

12 ounces Brennan’s Monterey Jack, Aged Cheddar, Gruyere or Swiss Cheese, thinly sliced

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter

Add-ins: (choose one)

8 slices smoked bacon, cook and broken into 1 inch pieces

2 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced, and drained on paper towels for 5 minutes

8 slices baked ham

Adapted From:

A fantastic meal on their own or served with your favorite soup.

Place 4 slices of bread on a cutting board. Lay half the cheese slices on the bread. Lay the bacon, tomato, or ham on top of the cheese. Cover with the remaining cheese. Top with the remaining slices of bread and press down slightly.

Heat a large skillet over medium/low heat and melt a tablespoon of the butter. Carefully place 2 of the sandwiches in the pan, and cook until the bread browns and the cheese is slightly melted, about 5 minutes. Turn the sandwiches with a spatula and add a small hazelnut size piece of butter to the pan. Cook until the other side of the sandwiches is toasted and the cheese is melted, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Repeat with other sandwiches. Lower heat if the bread browns too quickly before the cheese melts.
