Honey Truffle Grilled Cheese

This grilled cheese has a little something for everyone -- a little bit of sweet, a little bit of savory and a nice amount of salt. The gruyere cheese is a nice addition because it melts nicely and has a flavor that generally blends well with ingredients. This one also isn't too difficult to make.

Adapted from: O & Co.

-1 Brioche loaf, sliced
-Gruyere cheese shredded
-Honey mixed with truffle oil to taste
-¼ cup butter, softened

Spread butter onto a slice of bread.
Top with the cheese, a drizzle of honey/truffle oil and a good sprinkle of salt.
Top with another slice of brioche and cook until golden on each side.

Make as many sandwiches as desired. 

So far on the blog there have been a wide range of bad truffle oil based recipes. I think this was the most successful use of the ingredient. The strong flavor of the truffle oil was toned down by mixing it with the honey and the salt helped to balance out the sweetness. I don't think this was the most successful flavor for the grilled cheeses so far, but overall it was a nice lunch.
