Recipe from Panera Bread.
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for skillet
8 slices French or country bread, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/4 cup cranberry chutney (see recipe below)
1 pound roast turkey breast, sliced
1 1/2 pound brie cheese, sliced
1/4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
1 bunch baby arugula, trimmed
To build the sandwich from the bottom up, spread 1/2 tablespoon of butter on a slice of bread.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of cranberry chutney on top, and smooth it out.
Follow with a few slices of turkey and a couple slices of brie.
Sprinkle with the walnuts and scatter some arugula leaves evenly over the top.
Spread another half-tablespoon of butter on a piece of bread and press it, buttered-side down, into the sandwich. Repeat with remaining sandwich ingredients.
Heat a cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-low heat.
Add 1 tablespoon of butter and let it melt; swirl the pan around to coat.
Put sandwich in pan and weigh it down with a heavy pot or can (or wrap an ordinary brick in aluminum foil and set it on top to compress the sandwich). Toast for 1 minute.
Turn sandwich over before bread begins to burn and repeat. Cut sandwiches in half before serving.
