Brie and Apple Grilled Cheese

Brie and Apple Grilled Cheese

Sometimes a slight twist, like a special bread or an unexpected cheese, makes an ordinary sandwich suddenly appealing. In this heated sandwich, Brie, a creamy, soft cheese, melts into a yummy puddle of comfort on raisin bread.

You can substitute Cheddar or another hard cheese for Brie if your doctor has advised you to avoid soft cheeses.

Don't like raisins? You can substitute cinnamon swirl or any soft bread for the raisin bread in this sandwich.
