Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons finely shredded Manchego or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed and sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 24 slices slices pepperoni

Directions

  1. Spread 3 tablespoons butter on 1 side of each slice of bread. Place bread, butter side down, in a large cast-iron skillet or electric griddle over medium-low heat until golden brown, 2-3 minutes; remove. In a small bowl, combine cheddar, Monterey Jack and Gruyere. In another bowl, mix together remaining 3 tablespoons butter, mayonnaise, Manchego cheese and onion powder.
  2. To assemble sandwiches, top toasted side of 4 bread slices with pepperoni; add sliced Brie. Sprinkle cheddar cheese mixture evenly over Brie. Top with remaining bread slices, toasted side facing inward. Spread the butter-mayonnaise mixture on the outsides of each sandwich. Place in same skillet and cook until golden brown and cheese is melted, 5-6 minutes on each side. Serve immediately.
