How to Make Brie Grilled Cheese:

Start by spreading sliced sandwich bread with softened butter. I recommend a salted butter, and sometimes I do a flavored one with garlic and herbs for extra flavor:

Lay the buttered bread down in a skillet and add sliced brie, sliced mozzarella, and chicken breast slices:

I keep crockpot chicken breast on hand to quickly add protein for recipes like this.

Grill the bread for about 4-5 minutes on each side until the cheese is melty and gooey, and the bread is golden brown. Then you can sandwich the two slices together:

Now it’s ready to be sliced in half, so you can oooooh and ahhhhhh at the gooey cheese of your ultimate grilled cheese sandwich:

This Italian Club Sandwich, Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich, and Chicken Cordon Bleu Panini are some of my other favorite sandwiches on the blog, for a quick lunch or dinner. Enjoy!


How to Make a Cranberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This sandwich is so simple to make, so let's get started. Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat. I set the dial on my stovetop to "4", and it worked perfectly.

Spread the cranberry sauce on one slice of bread, the spread the brie cheese (with rind on) on the other. Don't worry if the brie doesn't cover the bread perfectly . you won't notice once it melts anyway.

Tip: For best results, let the ingredients sit at room temp for at least half an hour before starting. That will give the cheese and butter a chance to warm up and become spreadable. Plus, it will prevent the inside of your sandwich from being cold.

Close the sandwich, then spread butter over one side of the bread.

Place the sandwich in the hot frying pan, butter-side down. Then, butter the other side of the sandwich.

Cook the grilled cheese until it's lightly browned on one side. Flip it, then cook it until it's browned on the other, as well. It should take about five minutes per side.

And that's all there is to it . your grilled Cranberry and Brie Sandwich is ready to eat!

Doesn't all that ooey gooey melted brie just make your mouth water? I love a decadent treat like this, and the best part is that it only takes a few minutes to make!


Brie and Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I’ve had the desire to create a sandwich with grilled brie and apple for some time and it seemed that pairing it with a hard cider would be the perfect. Brie and apples are almost a perfect pairing by themselves adding a bit of mayonnaise with cranberries, whole grain mustard and honey as a condiment fit beautifully.

I made this sandwich for my daughter’s foray into fantasy football she had a team and doggone it she was going to watch some football! Served simply with chips on the side it was easy and yet just a bit elegant perfect food for football when your most important team is a Fantasy!

I expected hard cider to pair well with the tang of brie and the tart sweetness of apples. While a cold tray of cheese and fruits would have likely sufficed, I wanted something hearty and more warming with the advent of football season (trying hard to ignore that the actual outside temperature was over 90 degrees!).

The popularity of hard ciders can’t be denied for someone like myself who is not a died in the wool beer drinker it’s a most enjoyable quaff when the menu calls for something simple and more rustic than I would normally serve.

Sales of hard cider are nothing to laugh at… from 2011-2012 they totaled $90 million. While this is a small percentage of total beer sales, companies have seen seen huge increases and it looks like hard cider is here to stay!

Today would have been a more perfect day as Denver is finally moving into Fall mode. The beauty of this sandwich is really that’s it’s just so easy. Mixing some cranberries and whole grain mustard with mayonnaise and a touch of honey makes for the final touch.

The real planning comes in trying to remember to make that spread a bit of ahead of time to let the flavors meld other than that it’s just a quick time in a frying pan and an end result you will love.

Have you tried a hard cider you enjoy? Would love to hear which one we’re on a journey now to find our favorite! And make this sandwich…it’s rich and warm and satisfying and will guarantee your team a win (just kidding!).


Cranberry Brie Grilled Cheese

I was the girl at the grocery store at 7:30am the day after Thanksgiving. It was me and the dude replenishing the fresh cranberry produce display. We made eye contact, and I hustled away before I could register confusion and judgement in his eyes. To be fair… I was in the grocery (with a bit of a turkey-induced hangover) for two very specific items: fresh bread and brie cheese. I just felt like these were the best two items with which to make my Thanksgiving leftovers shine. I’ll tackle the stuffing and mashed potatoes later. First things first: cranberry sauce, bread, cheese, spicy mustard and go!

I could totally just eat cranberry sauce with a spoon, but bread, cheese, and mustard make most everything better.

If this sandwich looks devastatingly close to the Jalapeno Jack Grilled Cheese I made a few months ago… well, it is very similar. I have a deep love for edible things that melt and drip.

When you start with good ingredients, it feels like nothing can go wrong. Here we have a whole grain sourdough (still warm from my awkwardly early morning grocery run), creamy Brie cheese, whole grain mustard, unsalted butter, and the crown jewel… leftover cranberry sauce!

It’s a sort of smash-and-smear situation.

Oh… and I’m a person that enthusiastically eats Brie cheese rind and all. Get in there!

I love the way the spicy, sharp mustard plays with the sweet, tart cranberry sauce.

Now… if you don’t have cranberry sauce, there’s a recipe here. Don’t fret though… a chunky cherry or fig jam would also be most lovely.

This sandwich is exactly as supreme as it looks. The bread is buttery crisp and the insides are sweet and robust and utterly creamy-divine. It’s one part fancy, one part expensive, and one part leftovers. So much good in just one sandwich.

Cranberry Brie Grilled Cheese

makes one sandwich, but you should make as many as necessary

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened

1 heaping tablespoon whole grain mustard

a good hunk of Brie cheese

It feels silly to give written directions for a fancy grilled cheese sandwich, but let’s just work through this ritual.

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place bread butter side down on a cutting board and slather one side of the bread with mustard and the other side of bread with cranberry sauce.

Generously smear Brie cheese (rind and all) atop the mustard side of the bread (it’s less messing than smearing cheese on cranberry). Join the two slices together, but don’t smash them together.

Head a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwich in heated pan butter side down. Flip when bottom has turned a golden brown. Brown on each side. Remove from pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice in two. Serve immediately.


A Beautifully Gooey Hot Mess: Nutella-Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Nutella makes most things better, and toasting things in butter makes better things even. more better. So why not combine two great concepts and apply them to the greatest food ever? It makes for one seriously delicious mess of a sandwich.

The first time I had a Brie and Nutella sandwich was at The Smile in New York, where my old friend Chef Melia Marden serves the stuff on a warm baguette. It's really darn good.

Nutella makes most things better. This is something most of us already know.

Another thing we can agree on: Toasting things in butter makes better things even more better. So why not take her great sandwich idea, apply a bit of butter and heat to the equation, and see what we get?

Rather than my normal choice of white sandwich bread, I like the heartier texture of a French-style loaf here. More pores for stuff to ooze into, you know? The key is to slice the bread extra thick and grill extra slow, so that the melted cheese and chocolate drip in and out of every nook and cranny. I'm not going to lie: This is a delicious mess of a sandwich.


Blackberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Blackberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich: This sandwich goes great with a nice glass of red wine. The earthy flavor of the brie cheese is an incredible match with just about any fruit and most especially black berry.

This would also be a great recipe to make as small fingerling sandwiches. Simply use plain white bread and remove the crusts. Then when you are done grilling the sandwich cut it into fours to and pierce them with a toothpick. Now you have yourself a great blackberry brie grilled cheese appetizer!

I personally think that any food that goes good with red wine is a winner! You don’t often think of wine to be paired with grilled cheese, but in this case they go hand and hand. You could even add some sliced apples to the mix to provide for a crunchy and additionally sweet texture and flavor.

The beauty of grilled cheese is it’s versatility. There are so may different ways to make the sandwich that I am remiss as to why this is my first post on the subject. I can assure you there will be many more to follow!

Lobster and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

There’s nothing that warms my hungry little heart quite like a good old grilled cheese sandwich. I do love the classic, made with buttered bread and American cheese, but I also like to push those grilled cheese boundaries, which has taken me everywhere from macaroni and cheese grilled cheese sandwiches to grilled cheese croutons. But this open-faced lobster sandwich covered in melty Brie cheese? I make have finally found the pinnacle of grilled cheese sandwich heaven.

And if the prospect of tucking into one of these isn’t glorious enough, it’s also ridiculously easy to make…assuming you can get someone to crack the lobster for you. I am lucky enough to be married to someone who will happily go to the supermarket (where they will steam the lobster for you), bring it home, crack it open and pull out the lobster meat for me. Of course, he DOES get a lobster and Brie sandwich at the end of all this, but still. He gets props anyway.

Once you have your lobster meat, tear it into bite sized pieces. Now take a loaf of French bread and slice it on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices. Six slices is just about right for one lobster’s worth of meat, and of course this can be multiplied endlessly. Now spread the bread with a little bit of grainy mustard, which is going to give your sandwich just the right amount of zing, and top it with a slice or two of Brie cheese.

Pop the sandwiches onto a foil-lined cookie sheet and into the oven, just long enough so that the cheese melts gloriously over the lobster. I know, this is not technically grilling the cheese, but I figure warm and wonderful melty cheese? Close enough. Take them out and grind a little pepper on top.

This is a dramatic first course for a dinner party, and a lovely, brighten-up-your-weekday dinner with a salad on the side if you are just feeling like kicking things up a notch on a Tuesday night. And personally, I am ALWAYS game for kicking things up a notch, especially if it means I get away with serving grilled cheese for supper!
