That's a mouthful! Okay, so I've always been a HUGE fan of brie (not that that's not the case for all cheeses...but it's still one of my favorites). A baked brie with fruit and honey, yes please. Think of this blackberry and basil brie grilled cheese as the lunch version of that tasty brunch/dessert classic. It has all the necessary elements of a classic grilled cheese- little butter to crisp it up, freshly sliced pieces of sourdough, and a whole lot of cheese in the middle. This grilled cheese takes it to the next level with its sweet twist on a long time classic.
Of course the brie is the star here so (as always) don't skimp on it in your sandwich. As if that's not enough, the combination of blackberries, basil, and honey is one that just can't be turned down.
In my opinion, the key to a 10/10 grilled cheese is first your bread. My go to is always sourdough and I think in the case of this grilled cheese it is the perfect bread to soak up that butter and get nice and crispy, while also cutting some of the sweetness of the brie and honey, as well as to add a little bit of savory to your sweet.
I have always loved blackberries. Personally, I think that they are an extremely underrated berry. They're also so versatile, I love having some in the fridge at all times for whatever I may be in the mood for.
Achieve that golden glow on your grilled cheese, making sure its got that nice crisp to the outer edges. This will also ensure that your brie in the middle has a chance to melt nicely within. Top with basil, drizzle with honey, and enjoy!
