This sandwich is a flavorful combination of sweet strawberries roasted in balsamic vinegar with melted creamy brie cheese, and a punch of pungent and peppery tasting basil leaves.

This is not your ordinary sandwich! This Strawberry Balsamic Brie Grilled Cheese sammie belongs in a bistro that serves delicious tasting ingredients that aren’t so common, but why hunt down a restaurant when you can make this at home for a fraction of what it might cost going out! Plus, you can enjoy a glass of wine or some chilled bubbly with your feet propped up! Your tastebuds will be dancing with joy!

Remember that Balsamic Roasted Strawberry recipe I shared with you last week? Well, it has made a couple of more appearances on my table. It’s so darn good, easy to make, and hello, strawberries! Yeah, those delicious ruby red berries have been favored!

To be honest, sandwiches aren’t my go-to type of food to eat unless it’s heated like a patty melt is or saucy like a turkey meatball sub. I guess it’s warmth of the meal that I prefer or the gooey cheese that this sandwich is filled with! Did you hear that April is National Grilled Cheese Month?! Someone decided we should celebrate all month long, so I needed to make sure that I have something to celebrate with!

This sandwich is a pretty meal to serve and enjoy with friends or you can open face it on little baguette slices and dish up as an appetizer!

When was the last time you ate a grilled cheese sandwich?

    That looks sooooo good, unfortunately I would not be able to enjoy it. Staying off all cheese for now, may be allergic to rennet.

      Oh, no Norma! Yes, figure out what you are allergic to, but I hope you can bring cheese back into your diet!

    Yum! I’ve never considered putting strawberries on a sandwich, but it totally makes sense considering that’s what jams are made of. It sounds delicious with the brie and balsamic.

    Wow! This looks like an amazing take on the traditional grilled cheese. It will be on my list for possible date night dishes as we try to do those mostly at home to save money.

    Never heard of roasting strawberries before–hum—I actually had a grilled cheese sandwich when I was eating lunch out a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know why I don’t think to make one at home–they are really easy and delicious.

      You gotta try roasting strawberries, Michele! The flavor is delicious! Grilled cheese always reminds me of my kids when they were little. I didn’t make this for them, but wish I would have 🙂

    I love brie! And this sandwich looks amazing. I agree, I much prefer a warm sandwich over a cold one.

    I’ve never had balsamic glazed strawberries, but this sandwich sounds too delicious to pass up. Plus, brie is a weakness. I usually don’t buy it too often otherwise, it’d be all that I’d eat. Can’t wait to try this sometime 😀

      Oh, yes, I know what you mean. Gotta go easy on the brie, but when you do indulge, make it a memorable experience!
