  • Spread 3 tablespoons butter on 1 side of each slice of bread. Place bread, butter side down, in a large cast-iron skillet or 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.
