Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? Consequently, all month long, I’ve been drooling on my keyboard as various blogger friends have shared creative grilled cheese masterpieces on their blogs and across their social media accounts.

So last week, when I came across a hunk of Brie in my fridge at the same time that I was trying to decide how to use a newly purchased loaf of French bread, I realized that it wasn’t too late to join the grilled cheese celebration! After all, there are two full days remaining in April. But what to pair with the Brie?

And then, it came to me…fresh fruit! Because what goes better with cheese than fruit? I ultimately decided on strawberries because, not only did they sound like a lovely complement to the Brie, but I also happened to have a carton on hand. 😉 And lucky for my reluctance-to-make-a-trip-to-the-grocery-store, the flavors paired beautifully indeed and this Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese was born!

After taking pics of the first sandwich, I decided to make another, just in case I could get the oozing cheese to look oozier and the berries to look brighter. But then I spied a bag of chocolate chips in the pantry and stopped in my tracks. Because, welllll…

…if a Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese is good, a Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese with Chocolate(!!!) has to be better. Right?

Adding melted chocolate chips to a sandwich might just launch it into the dessert category, but that didn’t stop me from eating it for lunch. Yum.

Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese {with or without chocolate}

Yield: Variable

Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese {with or without chocolate}

Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese showcases fresh fruit and creamy cheese in a toasty, melty, savory-sweet sandwich...and you can even add chocolate for an extra-special treat!

Ingredients

  • Butter, softened
  • French bread (or your favorite crusty bread), sliced
  • Brie, thinly sliced
  • Fresh strawberries, washed, dried, & sliced
  • Mini chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. Butter two slices of French toast (on one side each). Assemble sandwich by covering first slice of bread (butter side down) with slices of Brie. Top with sliced strawberries, covering the cheese to the edges. Sprinkle generously with chocolate chips, if using. Top with another layer of Brie and second slice of French bread (butter side up).
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Transfer sandwich to skillet and cook for a few minutes until bottom is golden brown and cheese is starting to melt. Press down on sandwich to prevent the filling from falling out and carefully flip over. Cook until second side is golden brown and cheese is fully melted. Serve immediately.

Notes

Amounts of ingredients used will vary based on the size of your bread, but each of my sandwiches required about 1 tablespoon of butter, 3 ounces of Brie, 3 strawberries, and a couple tablespoons of mini chocolate chips.
