Method

 

Cheese sauce:

1. In a sauce pan, melt the butter. Once melted, slowly add in the flour until it completely combines together and cook for a minute

2. Slowly add the milk in small quantities at a time and whisk constantly

3. Once all the milk as been added, put in the cheddar and gruyere in 3 steps and continue moving the mix around until the cheese is fully melted.

4. Once melted, add salt, pepper, nutmeg and dijon mustard.

5. Set aside for assembly and preheat the Aquaforno to 300c with the pizza stone in

Once its reached temp assemble sandwich

The ideal way to reach a nice golden brown top is lots of high heat and a cold skillet!
Before putting the sandwich in, give the lid a little wipe in the inside as this will help the heat reflect down to act as a grill. The cold skillet will allow the bottom of the bread to get nice and crusty but not burn it. Using something like cast-iron that takes a while to heat up is your best bet, or even using a baking dish upside down with 1/2 inch-1 inch clearance to not have the bottom directly touching the pizza stone.

6. Butter one side of your bread and place that faced down.

7. Add a little cheese sauce onto the bread and then the sliced turkey and a few slices of brie

8. Place the other piece of bread on top and spread some more cheese sauce over the top.

9. Place sandwich on a cold skillet and place onto of the pizza stone cook in the oven until golden brown
