Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Makes: 2 Servings
- 4 Slices Sourdough Bread
- 3-4 Ounces of Gruyere Cheese
- 4-6 large Basil Leaves

Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Wash and dry the basil leaves. Thinly slice the cheese into large pieces.
Lay the bread slices on a clean, dry work surface. Divide the cheese slices and half of the basil between 2 of the bread slices; Complete the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices. Spread 1/4 of the butter on each of the top slices of bread.
Heat a griddle or fry pan on medium until hot. Add the sandwiches (butter side down) and cook 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, or until golden brown and crispy. Add the remaining butter on the unbuttered bread and carefully flip the sandwiches. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Transfer to a clean, dry work surface.
