  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the herbed butter ingredients and incorporate with a hand mixer.

  3. Arrange all the bread slices on a sheet pan. Incorporate the shredded cheeses and divide the mixture among the slices.

  6. Place a greased grill pan over medium heat.
  7. Spread the herbed butter on the outsides of each sandwich. Working 1-2 at a time, grill each sandwich until both sides are crisp and golden.
