Party-Ready Grilled Cheese
There are only three ingredients in these addictive bites, but each one is a powerhouse. You start with brioche, which has enough butter in it that you don't need to spread any on it. Then comes aged cheddar (the older it is, the more sharp it tastes). After you've miniaturized these droolworthy sandwiches into individual portions with a sharp knife, you add the finishing touch: A smear of Mostarda, a sweet-savory dried-fruit compote (you could also use fig jam).
