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!

  1. 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 😀

  2. 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.

    1. 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 🙂

  3. 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.
