Description

A simple and delicious grilled cheese sandwich with a perfect pairing of brie and bacon.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Ciabatta Roll, Sliced In Half Lengthwise
  • 4 slices Brie Cheese, Room Temperature
  • 2 slices Bacon (cooked)
  • 1 sprig Thyme

Preparation

Begin by heating a large cast iron skillet on medium to low heat. Add one tablespoon of butter to the side of each slice of bread. Lay one piece of the bread, butter side down, onto the heated skillet. Top with some brie cheese, then the bacon, thyme, and top with more cheese. Add the second piece of bread to the top of the sandwich, butter side up.

Let the sandwich cook, approximately 3-4 minutes on one side, then gently lift and check for the golden brown toasted color. Once you achieved that golden crust, slip it over and cook and additional 3-4 minutes, lowering the heat just a bit.

Do not smash the sandwich. Let it do its thing.

Once the other side is toasted, remove the sandwich from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes.

The end result is a delicious, melted cheese sandwich that has a pairing like no other. You get the smokiness and crispiness from the bacon along with the creaminess and a bit of delicious aroma from the outside skin of the brie. Truly simple and delicious. If you are looking to further complement this pairing, slice an apple, or pear and serve alongside your sandwich. Enjoy.
