Million Dollar Grilled Cheese


Okay, so the name of this sammy really isn't "Million Dollar grilled cheese" however, with all the yummy, slightly pricey cheese that's on it, I thought the name was perfect!  Let me tell you that the taste DOES live up to the name!

We found the recipe in its original form, HERE.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices sourdough or white bread
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Gruy√®re
  • 1/2 cup grated aged goat cheese
  • 3/4 cup Bread-and-Butter Pickles
  • 3 ounces thinly sliced "fake ham"  I had mine without and it was great. My husband liked the "fake ham" added to his :) 
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter

Preparation

  • Smear both sides of bread slices with mayonnaise. Combine cheeses in a bowl. Sprinkle 4 slices bread with half of cheese mixture, dividing equally. Top each with 3-4 pickles. Divide prosciutto among sandwiches; top with remaining cheese. Cover with remaining bread.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in each of 2 large heavy skillets over medium-low heat. Add 2 sandwiches to each skillet and cook until bread is golden, 9-10 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon butter to each skillet, flip sandwiches, and cook until bread is golden and cheese is melted, 9-10 minutes longer.
