To assemble sandwiches, top toasted side of 4 bread slices with sliced Brie. Sprinkle cheddar cheese mixture evenly over Brie. Top with remaining bread slices, toasted side facing inward.

  • Test Kitchen tips Even though it creates an extra step, toasting the bread on both sides makes a big difference! Do you love those crunchy, crispy bits of cheese that fall out of the sandwich and caramelize on the pan? Adding the Manchego or Parmesan to the butter and mayonnaise mixture gives you a similar result. If you're feeling nostalgic for grilled cheese on soft white bread, create a grown-up version using challah or brioche. To fancy it up, try adding Gentlemen's Whiskey Bacon Jam to your grilled cheese. You won't be sorry!
