Little Brioche Aged Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
One loaf of Brioche bread
Aged cheddar, sliced
Mostrada *sweet-savory dried fruit compote or chutney spice with savory spices, can be purchased at many specialty food stores
Cut the loaf lengthwise into ½ inch slices and place slices of the aged cheddar in between, building two large grilled cheese sandwiches. Place the sandwiches directly into a Panini press or side by side in a large non-stick pan. The bread has enough butter that you won’t need to butter it. Toast on both sides over medium-low heat, until bread is golden and cheese starts to ooze. Place sandwiches on a cutting board and cut into smaller pieces. Smear the tops of the sandwiches with Mostrada and serve!
Serves 2-4 as an appetizer.
