Blackberry and Basil Brie Grilled Cheese

A little honey, a few blackberries, a sprinkle of basil, and a whole lot of brie! This brie grilled cheese is a sweet twist to a classic sandwich.


Servings: 1 sandwich


  • 1 tbsp butter chilled
  • 2 pieces sourdough bread
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 ounces brie sliced (¼ cup)
  • 4-5 large blackberries sliced
  • 3-4 basil leaves chopped
  • 1 tsp honey


  • 1 basil leaf chopped
  • ½ tsp honey


1. Heat the chilled butter in a small to medium sized skillet on low to medium heat. Lightly brush the outer side of each piece of sourdough with melted butter.

2. Layer brie, blackberries, basil, and honey (in that order) on one slice of the sourdough. Top with the other piece of sourdough (with the sides brushed with butter facing out).

3. Place sandwich in skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden, pressing the sandwich down with a spatula throughout, helping to melt the brie and crisp the bread.

4. Once both sides are golden and crispy, remove from pan. Slice in half and sprinkle with additional basil and drizzle honey. Enjoy!
