Instructions
  1. Warm a small cast iron or pan over medium heat. Pull out the number of Brioche bread slices you need/want.
  2. If in a hurry – just slice some of your favorite easy to melt to cheese(s) – I went with Muenster and Havarti. I also took Dijon mustard and lightly spread it on one side of the inner Brioche slice where I was placing the Havarti. ***Normally if I had a little more time, I would shred the two cheeses and then use about 1 T of Dijon mustard to them and stir them together making them blendable and spreadable. I’d add a little salt and pepper to taste as well. I love making my grilled cheese sandwiches this way – but I was rushing and needed to get on the road.***
  3. I fold the two slices with cheese on both sides together and spread butter to one outer side. I then lay that side down on the heat cast iron/pan. I then spread the top outer layer with butter so it will be ready when I flip it.
  4. It doesn’t take long for these two cheeses to start melting so I flip it over and cook a few more minutes. Altogether I would say it was on the pan all of 5 minutes (maybe six tops).
  5. ***By the way, feel free to add tomato, avocado, bacon, apple, you name it between the cheeses to draw out even more flavor. I think that Muenster and Havarti with Dijon is enough for me but sometimes I do enjoy a tomato slice or two between them****
  6. ***If you decided to shred and spread the Dijon mustard and cheeses cooking time won’t vary much. You should still be looking at a good 5 minutes – all together – as in both sides done.
  7. Turn the heat off and remove the grilled cheese from the hot cast iron/pan and sit on a plate. You can cut it or not – but I find it easier and my cheese was massively gorging out, so I grabbed a bit of a wad and ate it by itself. I did. No shame.
  8. If you haven’t tried using Muenster – you must! Everyone seems to forget about this cheese. It’s really good and adding in with another like Havarti (you don’t have too) and mixed with Dijon – makes it delicious whether blended or not and eaten this way. I’ll try and make a blended one later in the week and add a picture or two so you can see and get an idea of it and how it looks after the fact. Just let me know what you think of the Muenster/Havarti/Brioche combination – as again, it’s one of my favorites! Enjoy!
  9. And yes, I started out on paper towels as I wasn’t planning on capturing any of this. I had to rush and eat to go on a jaunt (four hour round trip to pick up kids and bring them home) I needed something on my tummy!
  10. On some nights I make this (spreadable version) and eat with a yummy Tomato & Basil Soup. Or other soups. We’ll have lots of soup recipes coming up for Fall – warm or chilly I’m making my soups this year!
