Blueberry, Brie and Lemon Curd Grilled Cheese

Blueberry, Brie and Lemon Curd Grilled Cheese-a sweet and decadent grilled cheese sandwich that is perfect for dessert!

Blueberry, Brie and Lemon Curd Grilled Cheese Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com The BEST grilled cheese sandwich!

It’s no secret that grilled cheese sandwiches have been my ultimate pregnancy craving this time around. The ingredients are simple-bread, cheese, and butter. You really can’t go wrong when those ingredients are involved. I am fine with a classic grilled cheese sandwich, but sometimes it’s fun to spice things up. A few of my favorites include: Guacamole Grilled Cheese, Pesto Crusted Pesto Grilled Cheese, and Roasted Broccoli Grilled Cheese.

I love a good savory grilled cheese, but my new favorite is a sweet grilled cheese sandwich, Blueberry, Brie and Lemon Curd Grilled Cheese. You shouldn’t be too surprised since I have a major sweet tooth!

The other day we were out running errands and got home later than we anticipated. It was kind of late and I wasn’t in the mood to cook dinner, so Josh suggested grilled cheese sandwiches. He knew I would be on board.

I looked in the fridge and spotted a wedge of President Cheese Brie. My mouth started to water. I also found fresh blueberries and a jar of lemon curd. A light bulb went on in my head and I told Josh I wanted to make a dessert grilled cheese sandwich. I told him it was late enough so I could just skip dinner and have dessert:)

Josh agreed, but I started to feel like a bad mother, so I got out some veggies, crackers, fruit and spreadable President Gourmet Cheese for us to snack on while we made our dessert grilled cheese sandwiches. I felt better that Caleb had some “dinner food” in his belly before we indulged. And Caleb loves the Garlic and Herb cheese so he was happy spreading cheese on crackers while we got to work.

Josh cut slices of crusty bread while I sliced the brie. I also put the blueberries on the stove with a little water and sugar so they would create a nice blueberry sauce.

Josh buttered the outside slices of bread and layered the brie, lemon curd, and blueberry sauce inside the pieces of bread. He grilled the sandwiches until the brie and blueberries were oozing out the side. I couldn’t wait to have a taste!

There are no words to describe the deliciousness of this sandwich. It is out of this world good! The melty brie paired with the sweet blueberries and tart lemon curd is amazing! I was only going to eat half of a sandwich, but I had to finish the whole thing. It was too good to stop! Josh and Caleb enjoyed the sweet sandwiches too. Caleb had blueberries all over his face…with a big smile!

Sweeten up your spring with a Blueberry, Brie and Lemon Curd Grilled Cheese sandwich. I can’t stop thinking about this sandwich. I think I need a round 2 and very soon!

Blueberry, Brie and Lemon Curd Grilled Cheese

Yield: 2 sandwiches

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

This sweet grilled cheese sandwich is perfect for dessert...or any time of the day! It is amazing!

Ingredients:

1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
2 teaspoons of water (if using fresh berries)
1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey
4 slices crusty bread
Softened butter, to spread on bread
3 oz President brie cheese, thinly sliced
3-4 tablespoons lemon curd

Directions:

1. In a small saucepan, add the blueberries and water. Only add the water if you are using fresh berries. You don't need water if you are using frozen berries. Stir in the sugar or honey. Cook over medium heat until blueberries begin to pop and are juicy. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.

3. Evenly place slices of brie cheese on unbuttered side of two slices of the bread. Spread lemon curd evenly on the bread slices. Top with blueberries and addition slices of brie cheese. Top with remaining slice of buttered bread.

4. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Place sandwich, butter side down, in pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted and cheese melts. Remove from pan and cut sandwich in half, if desired. Serve immediately.

Note-I used store bought lemon curd from Trader Joe's. You can make your own though!

    Wow. What a surprising pairing – blueberries and cheese. Looks like a fun experience. I wonder how that would go over here in Paris? The French are pretty particular about what cheese can be paired with :)
    Thanks for all the great inspiration!

    I’d have a really hard time not just eating that entire block of cheese between handfuls of blueberries. I admire your restraint.

    Hi Maria! I’m a long time fan of your blog and we have so much in common. I also have a 2 year old son, and am expecting our second child in June (a boy!).

    I hope you don’t take offense to this, but I’m curious what your OB said about eating soft cheeses like that during pregnancy, especially frequently? Both my OB with my first son as well as with this pregnancy said no way which is a bummer because that sandwich looks so good!

    I hope your pregnancy is going well and I’m sure Caleb is so excited to be a big brother.

      Thanks for your concern. President Cheese is pasteurized so it is fine.
