Strawberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 
 
Nothing says comfort food like a nice gooey grilled cheese sandwich and in the winter a bowl of tomato soup on the side! For this month’s cooking  challenge our recipe was for grilled cheese. Strawberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich is the one I chose.

I am usually an American Cheese girl with wheat toast so this has made me think out of the box. Since Strawberries are in season and we went picking last weekend, strawberries and brie were on my mind.

 
I found a few recipes, some were used with Angel Food Cake as the bread but since I was not looking for a dessert recipe, I decided to keep looking. I found a recipe on TribecaYummyMummy that was not toasted but figured I could make it work.

 

 

In her recipe she macerated Strawberries in Balsamic, something I have been meaning to try. A pint of strawberries to two tablespoons of Vinegar.

I buttered 2 slices of a fresh whole grain loaf. My intention was to buy a loaf of Brioche but the bakery I went to was all out. This is healthier right!

I left the Brie get to room temperature for easier melting too.

Layer the cheese and strawberries with a little of the juice for flavoring.

Grill on both sides as you would a traditional sandwich.

Ready for a bite! My husband was a little turned off when I told him what was for dinner but once he had a bite he asked for another half! My daughter also enjoyed the sandwich I made her. No strawberries try some mango chutney.

  11. I might like this one better than mine with goat cheese. I LOVE balsamic and strawberries. If I had come across a recipe using angle food cake as the bread I probably would have gone for it. I’m a dessert kind of girl.
