How do you make a summer grilled cheese sandwich? How about changing up the flavors to include a summer fruit? I found a recipe on Stonewall Kitchen’s website for a summer raspberry brie grilled cheese sandwich. Even though I did not have their product, I tried my other brand raspberry jam for an equally tasty meal.
This is a great recipe for summer picnics. No need to worry about any of these ingredients spoiling in the picnic basket. Very easy to prepare and actually tastes good either hot or cold. It seems very French to me –so very European.
Use sturdy bread, like a ciabatta, and spread with jam. Butter each side before cooking. Slice the brie cheese and place over the jam. I usually butter each side as I layer into the panini maker. This sandwich can be baked in the oven, grilled in a panini press, or heated in a skillet until the cheese is just melted. Slice the sandwich and pack for a great meal outdoors.
