Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Serves/Makes: 4

4 Tablespoons butter
4 teaspoons Dijon-style
mustard
4 teaspoons pressed fresh
garlic

8 slices sourdough bread,
about inch thick
6 ounces Fontina cheese
6 ounces mozzarella cheese
4 Tablespoons shredded
Parmesan,
Asiago or Pecorino Romano
cheese
4 Tablespoons thinly sliced
scallions

  1. Grease and preheat grill. If you have a grill with a variable temperature
    control, set it to medium-high (1 or 2 steps below high) or to about 350 to 400*F.

  2. In a small saucepan melt the butter over low heat. When the butter is melted, whisk in the mustard and garlic. Set aside.

  3. Grate the three different types of cheeses into a small bowl and combine with a fork.

  4. Put 4 slices of sourdough bread on a large plate. Put 1 Tablespoon of scallions on each slice. Place a layer of cheese over the scallions, dividing equally among the 4 slices. Place a slice of sourdough over the cheese and brush the garlic-mustard-butter baste on top.

  5. Carefully put each sandwich, basted side down, on the grill. Brush the tops of each sandwich evenly with the remaining garlic-mustard-butter baste.

  6. Grill a total of 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill and serve.
