Eight thick slices of bread
4 ounces smoked gouda, sliced thinly
4 ounces baby gouda, sliced thinly
1 medium jarred roasted pepper (red), drained, dried and thinly sliced
2 cups baby arugula
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened


Lay out 4 slices of the bread on a work surface. Layer each with some of the smoked gouda, baby gouda, a thin layer of sliced roasted pepper (about 2 tablespoons), 1/2 cup of the baby arugula and another layer of smoked gouda. Close the sandwiches with the remaining bread. Thinly and evenly spread the butter on both sides of the bread using about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the butter for each sandwich.

Place 2 sandwiches into a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook until the bread is evenly golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip, cover again and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is visibly melted, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
