Instructions Checklist
  • Arrange bread in a single layer on a clean work surface. Stir together butter and mayonnaise. Spread mixture evenly onto one side of every slice (1 scant tablespoon per slice).

  • Heat a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium. Flip over bread on work surface (so it's plain-side up). Spread Dijon evenly onto 4 slices. Spread onion jam onto remaining 4 slices and top evenly with cheese. Carefully sandwich together.

  • Place sandwiches in skillet (in two batches, if needed). Reduce heat to medium-low; gently top sandwiches with a lid slightly smaller than skillet for even cooking. Cook, flipping once halfway through, until crisp and golden on both sides and cheese is melted, 7 to 9 minutes. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Our test kitchen's pick for onion jam is The Jam Stand Sweet Wino Onion Jam, available at amazon.com.
