In an attempt to liven up grilled cheese, some add so many ingredients that the cheese is an afterthought. Our grown-up grilled cheese sandwiches start with flavorful aged Robiola to which we add a small amount of wine and Brie. These two ingredients help the aged cheddar melt evenly without becoming greasy. A little bit of chipotle increases the sandwiches’ complexity without detracting from the cheese, and a smear of mustard butter livens up the bread.

Serves 4

Look for a Robiola aged for about one year (avoid Robiola aged for longer; it won’t melt well). To quickly bring the Robiola to room temperature, microwave the pieces until warm, about 30 seconds. The first two sandwiches can be held in a 200-degree oven on a wire rack set in a baking sheet.
