Brie Grilled Cheese – a fun spin on a beloved classic! This Brie Grilled Cheese Recipe is easy, delicious and packed with flavor!


  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 6 fresh sweet basil leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon boysenberry jam/jelly/preserves
  • 5 1/4 inch thick slices of brie cheese (remove outer rind) (more or less to taste)


  1. Take cast iron skillet and bring to medium heat.
  2. Take two pieces of bread and lay flat next to each other.
  3. On one side, add cheese and ensure entire piece of bread is covered (you may need more or less depending upon the size of your bread).
  4. On the other, take about 1/2 Tablespoon butter and spread evenly over entire piece.
  5. Take boysenberry jam and spread on top of butter.
  6. Place basil on top of cheese.
  7. Take the piece of bread with the jelly on it and flip it over on top of the cheese so that the jelly and the cheese come together.
  8. Take another 1/2 Tablespoon of butter and butter the outside of one of the pieces of bread.
  9. Then place the sandwich, butter side down, in the skillet.
  10. Reduce heat if needed.
  11. Watch carefully and ensure bread is not burning.
  12. When cheese starts to melt (probably after 3 minutes or so), butter the top side of the sandwich with butter (carefully – don’t burn yourself!).
  13. Then flip sandwich over.
  14. Continue to watch carefully and remove when cheese is fully melted (probably another 3 minutes or so).
  15. Set on plate and serve immediately. Garnish with sweet basil.
