Ingredients

  • 8 slices of your favorite bread
  • 1/4C Soft or whipped butter
  • 2T Dijon mustard
  • 2T Banyuls Vinegar

Preparation

In a medium bowl season the grated cheeses together generously with vinegar, salt and pepper. Put a thin layer of mustard on all eight slices of bread. Layer an even mixture of cheese onto 4 slices of bread. Close the sandwiches.

Spread half of the butter on top of each sandwiches and place them butter side down onto a cold saute pan. Butter the remaining side of the bread. Place the sandwiches over low heat for 5 to 7 minutes with a cover. Periodically check to ensure bread is not burning.

When cheese is visibly melted and bottom side is toasted flip and turn up heat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 3 to 4 minutes. Slice and serve.
