What You'll Need
  • 4 Slices crusty Artisan bread or sourdough bread
  • 4 ounces manchego cheese, shredded
  • 4 ounces cup gouda cheese, shredded
  • 6 ounces gruyère cheese, thick slices
  • 1/4 cup chives, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon truffle oil
  • 6 thinly shaved black truffle slices
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  1. Take a medium sized bowl; combine shredded manchego cheese, shredded gouda cheese, red chili flakes, chives, dried oregano, truffle oil and combine all together.
  2. Spread the butter on both the bread slices, top it with the combined cheese mixture on one bread slice. Add the slices of truffle from the oil on top of the cheese mixture. On the other bread top with a thick slice of gruyere cheese and keep it aside.
  3. Heat a medium skillet with a tablespoon of butter, once the butter is melted add the garlic slices and fry till the butter gets that garlic flavor.
  4. Remove the fried garlic and add the bread with butter side facing up. Then place the remaining slice of bread on top with a thick cheese slice on it. Cook until the underside bread turns golden.
  5. Flip to the other side of the bread carefully and cook until the cheese begins to melt and the bread turns to golden and crisp.
  6. Once done transfer the sandwich to a cutting board and cut in the middle and serve the warm grilled sandwich immediately.
