Instructions

  1. Sauté onion in olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until tender. Season with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Remove onion from the pan; keep warm.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the same pan over medium heat. Stir in mushrooms; cook for 4-6 minutes until mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. Transfer mushroom mixture to a bowl. 
  3. Spread three slices of bread with mustard; layer with the onion, mushroom mixture and brick. Top with remaining bread. Spread the outsides of sandwiches with remaining butter.
  4. Warm an electric griddle or the same skillet over medium heat. Toast sandwiches, covered, for 2-3 minutes or until bread is lightly golden brown. Flip sandwiches; cook, uncovered, for 2-4 minutes longer or until bread is lightly golden brown and cheese is melted.

Cheesemonger Tip

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Brick cheese was named because cheesemakers originally used bricks to press moisture from the cheese and for its shape. The flavor of the cheese ranges from mild to pungent, depending on age.
