Dinner tonight!: Lucques' grilled cheese sandwich

Lucques' grilled cheese

Could it possibly get any better than grilled cheese? Probably not. Gary from Oxnard requested the recipe for the classic comfort food from Lucques:

One of my favorite late-night meals has been sitting at the bar at Lucques on Melrose, snacking on the grilled cheese sandwich and washing it down with a gin gimlet. I can make the gimlet but can never duplicate the combination of crispy bread and several cheeses. Help.

For its take on the classic, Lucques starts with a gentle, buttery Cantal, a mild semi-firm cheese with a fantastic creamy consistency when melted. Caramelized shallots punctuated with a little fresh thyme add another dimension. Put all that between two crisp slices of country-style bread and raise a glass.
