Grilled cheese series: Blueberry brie

Hey kids! Welcome back to the grilled cheese series.  This summer’s grilled cheese party starred the following sandwiches; two sweet, and two savory:

Through trial and error, I found a good way to make grilled cheese for a crowd.  You grill the bread slices individually, lay them grilled side down on a baking sheet with cheese on both slices, bake them later on when the time comes, then press together to form the sandwich.

Ingredients

  • Unknown quantity of butter (seriously, have a lot on hand)
  • Whole wheat bread
  • Blueberries (wild works best, since they are tiny)
  • Lemon zest (lemon juice could also work, unless it makes the blueberry mixture too watery)
  • Honey

Instructions

  1. Mash together your blueberries, lemon zest, and some honey.  Depending on how watery your mixture is, you could also add lemon juice.
  2. Heat a grill pan (or regular skillet, if you don’t care about grill marks), butter one side of each bread slice, and grill that. Remove once bread is well grilled.
  3. Lay slice #1 grilled-side down on a baking sheet, then add your cheese and spoon some blueberry mixture over
  4. Lay slice #2 grilled-side down on a baking sheet, and add cheese.  Later you’ll press the two together.  See what I did there?  Cheese on both sides.
  5. Once you’ve assembled all your slices, put them in a 400 degree oven until cheese is melted and bread is crispy on the outside.
  6. Press slice #1 and slice #2 together.
  7. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.
