"Adult" Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese was the first thing I learned to make by myself on the stove. And although I make one hell of a grilled cheese sandwich, I think it's time to class up a classic. Honestly, these sandwiches are so decadent you could actually serve them at a dinner party! Still pretty simple to make, but the ingredients are FAR from ordinary!

2 tsp butter, room temperature
4 slices brioche or egg bread
Black Olive Pâté

4 oz Brie or Camembert, thinly sliced
Roasted red pepper
1 small handful baby arugula

1.     Spread butter over 1 side of each slice of bread. Spread pâté over 2 of the slices. Place half of the brie over top. Pat pepper dry and cut into wide strips. Set over cheese, followed by arugula, remaining brie and bread, butter-side out.
2.     Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add sandwiches to pan. Cook until cheese is melted and bread slices are golden, 3 to 4 minutes a side. Press with spatula to help sandwiches stick together.
