Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures said: "Yes! You read that right! Grilled cheese for dessert. April is National Grilled Cheese Month and I thought we could celebrate it a little differently this year. Think brie and fruits, mascarpone or ricotta and chocolate."
Ok, let me admit right now that I forgot when I picked the title of my sandwich that this was supposed to be dessert - and let that explain why there are delicious caramelized onions in this one!
Let me also say that I don't care that there are delicious caramelized onions in here, I still think this could be dessert! But if you disagree with me about the onions, leave them out and make this with just melty gooey brie and sweet and sticky apricot preserves and I think we'll all be in agreement once again!
Come see all of our grilled cheese recipes for today!
Apricot Brie Grilled Cheese
2 slices bread (I used this homemade bread)
1 TBS butter, softened
4 rectangular slices of brie cheese, rind removed
1-2 TBS apricot preserves
2 TBS caramelized onions (optional)
- Preheat a griddler to medium-high / high heat. Butter the outsides of the bread slices and lay them on a board. Smear the insides of both bread pieces with apricot preserves. Lay the brie cheese along one half, and top with caramelized onions (if using). Top with the other half of the bread.
- Place the buttered side down on the griddler, and closer the lid gently. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until bread is golden brown and crispy, and cheese is completely gooey and melted.
- Slice in half and serve immediately.
Note - if you don't have a griddler / sandwich press, cook in a nonstick skillet over medium heat about 3-4 minutes per side. Adjust heat as necessary so bread browns but doesn't burn as cheese melts!
