Grilled cheese has a kids’ menu rep­u­ta­tion, but just a few tweaks make it a so­phis­ti­cated din­ner op­tion.

To cre­ate a sand­wich with more ro­bust flavour and per­son­al­ity with­out go­ing over­board on top­pings and ad­di­tions, we fo­cused on the cheese. Our recipe be­gan by mix­ing flavour­ful aged ched­dar with a small amount of Brie and some wine in a food pro­ces­sor. Those two in­gre­di­ents helped the ched­dar melt evenly with­out be­com­ing greasy.

A lit­tle bit of shal­lot in­creased the sand­wiches’ com­plex­ity with­out de­tract­ing from the cheese, and a smear of mus­tard-but­ter on the bread added a sharp bite. Look for a ched­dar aged for about one year (avoid ched­dar aged for longer; it won’t melt well). To bring the ched­dar to room tem­per­a­ture quickly, mi­crowave the pieces un­til warm, about 30 sec­onds.


Serv­ings: 4

Start to fin­ish: 30 min­utes

7 ounces aged ched­dar cheese, cut into 24 equal pieces, room tem­per­a­ture 2 ounces Brie cheese, rind re­moved 2 ta­ble­spoons dry white wine or dry ver­mouth

4 tea­spoons minced shal­lot

3 ta­ble­spoons un­salted but­ter, soft­ened

1 tea­spoon Di­jon mus­tard

8 slices hearty white sand­wich bread

Ad­just oven rack to mid­dle po­si­tion and heat oven to 200 F. Process ched­dar, Brie, and wine in food pro­ces­sor un­til smooth paste forms, 20 to 30 sec­onds. Add shal­lot and pulse to com­bine, 3 to 5 pulses; trans­fer to bowl. In sep­a­rate bowl, com­bine but­ter and mus­tard.

Brush but­ter-mus­tard mix­ture evenly over 1 side of each slice of bread. Flip 4 slices over and spread cheese mix­ture evenly over sec­ond side. Top with re­main­ing 4 slices bread, but­tered side up, and press down gen­tly.

Heat 12 inch non­stick skil­let over medium heat for 2 min­utes. Place 2 sand­wiches in skil­let, re­duce heat to medium-low, and cook un­til both sides are crisp and golden brown, 6 to 9 min­utes per side.

Trans­fer sand­wiches to wire rack set in rimmed bak­ing sheet and keep warm in oven. Wipe out skil­let with pa­per tow­els and cook re­main­ing 2 sand­wiches. Serve.
