A grilled cheese sandwich never goes out of fashion. You can use different breads but here the chef uses the egg and butter rich brioche which is really tender. Additions of different kinds of cheese make it more robust.

Three cheese – 30 gms

Butter one side of each bread and cook on griddle, place a slice of provolone on each bread topped with three cheeses. Place breads open face in salamander to melt the cheese thoroughly. Salamanders are kitchen devices used for broiling, browning, caramelizing, glazing, grilling and toasting.
