Ingredients

Directions

  1. Make 4 sandwiches by placing 1 layer of the cheese between 2 slices of the bread. Gently mash the sandwiches to seal in the cheese.
  2. Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium heat. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk and season with the salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in the skillet.
  3. Dip 2 of the sandwiches in the egg mixture to moisten both sides and place in skillet. Cook until browned and crisp, about 4 minutes per side, pressing with a spatula to seal. Wipe pan clean, add the remaining butter, and repeat with the other 2 sandwiches. Serve immediately.

Cheese
Fresh and soft cheeses, like ricotta and Brie, will keep about two weeks; hard cheeses, like Parmesan and Manchego, will last several months.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
