- Bricks are not just for chicken. Today I'm gonna show you guys how I make a Manchego grilled cheese with some honey butter. Let's get started. We're gonna make a compound butter, and that basically just means we have some soft butter and we're just gonna add some honey. Work into each other. All right, so this we're gonna set aside, and we'll get started on our baguette. So to make this nice and even, I just cut it in half. And then cut those halves. This just makes it easier to fit inside the pan and for the brick to go over it, and that brick is gonna really weigh them down. Let's make it easier. So this is just my fancy spin on grilled cheese. I love honey and Manchego, I think they're just like something I go to for a snack. So for an easy weeknight dinner, this just takes it to a whole new level. So we're gonna take some of the butter and honey mixture, we're gonna slather it on here. And get started on this guy, we're just gonna put some Manchego inside. All right. Some butter also. And this will just help the bread get some nice color to it. Our grill's been getting also warm here. All right so you have to weigh these guys down. And we're gonna use a brick that I've just wrapped in aluminum foil here. And this will give it some good amount of weight. And again you're just gonna take that honey butter, put it all over your bread. You can use this honey butter on a lot of different kinds of food. And again, we'll go in with a little bit of butter to the bottom of our baguette. We'll put this right next to our . And they can share the brick. And you want the heat nice and low since our baguette is thick, you want it to start slowly warming the baguette. If you don't have a brick, you can always use a cast iron skillet, something that's just really, really heavy. Our Manchego grilled cheese has been on here for a few minutes now and we're gonna go ahead and top it with some butter and flip. Yes, that crust. Beautiful, and that butter really helped make that color happen. And again, brick back on top. So if your pan starts to look a little dry, you can just take like little nubs of butter and pop them in. So while it's cooking, we want to move the brick around just so it's like squishing everyone down. Okay I think we're ready. Let's take our brick off. And we'll turn our heat off. So I let this first guy right here. Yes. All right, so we're gonna cut this in half. Gonna crack. It's cheese. Now because it's Manchego cheese you're not gonna get that pull apart cheesy, the cheese is actually melted into the bread and the butter and the honey. Mm, mm, mm. My happy dance. My grilled cheese dance. Mm, salty, sweet with the honey and the cheese. I know you guys are gonna try this one.
