Dubliner cheese has a higher melt-point than many cheeses, so it is very important that you allow your sandwich to grill slowly.
Preheat an electric griddle to 275°-300°F (135°-150°C), or heat a heavy skillet over medium-low.Brush a 50/50 mixture of light olive oil and melted butter onto the grilling surface, or generously butter the outside face of each piece of bread.
Place the assembled sandwich on the preheated griddle and grill for 4 minutes per side, or until it is light honey brown.Remove sandwich from heat, and onto a plate or cutting board.
Cheese Crisps (Tuiles)
Sprinkle grated cheese on non-stick surface and allow to cook until golden on the bottom. Using a spatula, carefully peel the crisp cheese off the grilling surface and allow to cool. You can shape it if you want before it cools, but if you do so, be extremely careful as the cheese will be very hot! You can make small cheese crisps to use as garnish, or a large one to serve over the entire sandwich.
