Turkey, Brie and Pear-Apple Butter
 Grilled Cheese Sandwich

April 18, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

OK. I admit it was pretty much a given that turkey, brie, and pear-apple butter would make for a stellar grilled cheese sandwich. But did any of you stop and think about the bread? Did you even bother to consider how the choice of bread could completely change the taste of the sandwich?

I thought not.

So I’m asking you, as a favor, please grill this sandwich – tender deli turkey, oozing brie, and sweet pear-apple butter – on savory, pungent caraway rye bread. And please, please enjoy the earthy perfume of toasted caraway seeds in the air when the buttered bread hits the griddle. Could you just do this one little thing for me?

  1. I never imagined that the bread could make such a difference. I love that you’re experimenting and finding out all these little neat facts.

    I once made “stuffing bread” for my husband…White bread infused with all the flavours of stuffing, and some sauteed onions and celery and sage. That would be good bread for this sandwich too. I am loving your grilled cheese series. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
