Gruyere Grilled Cheese

When you’re feeling down or depressed, try making this gruyere grilled cheese sandwich. It’s yummy and cheesy and full of goodness and will instantly make you feel better.

Sliced Gruyere cheese is layered with thin slices of prosciutto and then placed inside thick slices of sourdough bread that has been spread with butter on the outside and mustard on the inside.

Don’t Skimp On The Good Bread

The key to this grilled cheese is the quality of the bread.  I’ve used slices of my Tartine Country Loaf for this recipe which really makes all the difference.  Sliced nice and thick and smothered in butter, the sandwich gets a nice golden color on the outside from the grilling.

Grilled on a cast iron skillet until all the cheese melts, this sandwich is the perfect comfort food…for any mood!

    I usually gawk quietly, but I just have to ask. Is that the grilled cheese bag from Campblogaway you are using as a prop? Actually I see that it is not, but at first glance I thought. Damn that makes a fine looking grilled sandwich… GREG

    Looks yummy! Any particular kind/type of mustard? I'd tend toward Dijon, but maybe you have a preference ….

    First time I see this kind of sandwich, but I have to say it looks so appetizing. I would like to be at home to prepare a couple of them.
