Cheese Sandwich

No recipe image available.The classic combination of cheese, garlic, and fresh herbs tastes all the better when it's melted between two slices of brioche, a butter-rich bread.

Recipe Ingredients:

Garlic Herb Spread:
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 bunch basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic

12 slices brioche bread
6 large slices mozzarella
6 large slices Gouda
6 large slices fontina cheese
2 ripe plum tomatoes, sliced
3 tablespoon olive oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. To prepare garlic spread: combine the olive oil, basil, rosemary, thyme, Parmesan, and garlic in a food processor and process until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Spread 6 slices of the bread with the garlic spread. Layer the sandwich with a slice of each of the cheeses. Top with the sliced tomatoes and the remaining slices of bread. Brush both sides of the each sandwich with olive oil.
  3. Heat a large nonstick pan over high heat until very hot. Place as many sandwiches in the pan as will fit and brown until the cheese melts, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Keep the finished sandwiches warm while the others cook. Cut in half and serve warm.

Makes 6 servings.
