Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

This is a gourmet grilled cheese, and very grown-up.  This recipe came from Real Simple Magazine. 

12 slices white sandwich bread
12 ounces cheese, such as Gruyere or fontina, thinly sliced
1 cup fruit chutney, such as cranberry, fig, or mango

 Form 6 sandwiches with the bread, cheese and chutney.  In 2 batches, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the sandwiches until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted, 2-3 minutes per side.  Cut each sandwich into quarters before serving.

Makes 24

Make ahead strategy:  The sandwiches can be cooked up to 2 hours in advance and kept at room temperature.  reheat on a baking sheet at 350 for 10-15 minutes; keep warm at 250.  Cut just before serving.
