Recipe of the Day:
Smoked Swiss and Mushroom Grilled Cheese
Submitted by: FoFa

FoFa says: "This sandwich is an explosion of smoky, melty goodness. Yes you can substitute regular Swiss if you can't find smoked swiss."

For the mushrooms:

3 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon dry white wine
Pinch thyme
Salt and pepper

For the sandwiches:

2 Tablespoons butter
4 slices sturdy bread (such as sourdough)
4 slices smoked Swiss cheese

For the mushrooms:

Heat the oil and 2 Tbl butter in a large saute pan over medium heat.
Saute the onions until translucent.
Remove onions, save for later.
Add the rest of the butter.
Once the butter is starting to sizzle, add the mushrooms in a single layer.
Let them cook for a few minutes undisturbed.
Check the bottom of the mushrooms, and, when they're golden brown and caramelized on the edges, flip.
Continue to cook until the other side is caramelized, as well.
Add the onions and heat through, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the garlic.

Deglaze the pan with the wine and allow the liquid to cook off for another minute.
Season with thyme, salt, and pepper to taste.
Remove from heat.

For the sandwiches:

Butter one side of each of the four slices of bread.
Assemble the sandwiches with one piece of bread (buttered side out) followed by a slice of cheese, half the mushrooms, another slice of cheese, then a second slice of bread, buttered side out.

Heat a grill pan/skillet over medium heat.
Add the sandwiches and grill for 3-5 minutes or until golden and crisp on one side.
Carefully flip the sandwiches, cover the pan with a lid or cookie sheet, and cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until the opposite side is golden and cheese is extra melty.
Serve immediately.
