Recipe Information
Gourmet French grilled cheese sandwich with tomato, herbs and different cheeses.

D. Lishus


  • butter
  • 2 slices thick and crusty sourdough french bread
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese
  • 1 slice provolone cheese
  • tomato slices
  • mayonnaise
  • cream cheese
  • dried basil
  • garlic powder
  • Begin by very lightly toasting the bread and butter them on one side each.
  • On one slice, spread a thick layer of cream cheese on the unbuttered side.
  • On the other slice, spread a layer of mayonnaise on the other unbuttered side.
  • Put a slice of Swiss cheese on the cream cheese and a slice of provolone on the mayonnaise.
  • Put some tomato on one of the sides and season both with a bit of dried basil and garlic powder.
  • Put the two pieces together, tomato and cheese in the middle, pressing down gently to hold together.
  • In a shallow bowl, have the beaten egg and put the sandwich in the egg.
  • Let soak a few seconds and turn over to soak the other side.
  • Heat some butter in a frying pan until hot and fry the sandwich until nice and golden brown on both sides and cheeses are melted in the middle.
  • Serve immediately and eat with knife and fork.
I suggest doubleing the recipe and making a couple, especially if there is anyone around - it will dissappear instantly. Warning: Highly addictive!
