Cheese Sandwiches

Cheese and bread are two of our favorite foods, and they taste even better together. Whether it’s feta and focaccia, Gruyere and brioche or cheddar and pumpernickel, these two can do no wrong. One of our favorite cheesy sandwiches is asparagus and goat cheese on a baguette. The asparagus is both raw and roasted, and layered onto the crusty bread with creamy avocado, fresh mint and a little red wine vinegar. For something a little meltier, we love to stack gruyere, sautéed onions, Dijon mustard and pickles on sandwich bread and grill it until it’s toasty. Find these recipes and more in F&W’s guide to cheese sandwiches.

These crisp, buttery, and supremely gooey grilled cheese sandwiches get fantastic tang from sourdough bread and a bright mustardy bite from leeks. They were inspired by a quiche that TV personality Alex Guarnaschelli ate years ago made from brioche layered with caramelized leeks and baked with Gruyère and Parmesan. In this version, she uses Brie because she says that while there are cheeses with more distinct flavor, no other cheese ends up so creamy.
