Smoked Brie, Bacon and Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich #SundaySupper

Yum
National Grilled Cheese Day was April 12, but really, is there ever a bad day to have a grilled cheese? This lovely, lovely sandwich can be made on the grill, too, and with a little extra smoke, this decadent sandwich is good enough for guests!

Brie, Bacon and Basil Grilled Cheese


What is it about melted brie cheese anyway?  It is so good with sweet, like honey and it fabulous with salt, like bacon. It is a perfect appetizer, but on this sandwich, makes a main course that you will want over and over again.  Get you some brie.

I don't add a spread to this sandwich but my husband does like to add a little mustard. He likes something with a little heat. If I were to add a little something, I think honey mustard would be the winner.

Brie, Bacon and Basil Grilled Cheese

Smoked Grilled Brie, Bacon and Basil Grilled Cheese

Sliced Brie Cheese
8 slices of your favorite bacon
1/2 c basil leaves
4 slices of good bread

Preheat grill to medium.  Light pellets (we use Smokin' O's if you need some ideas!) for smoke. Butter bread on one side.  Cook bacon on a griddle on the grill.  When bacon is done, lay 2 slices of bread butter side down on the grill.  Top with bacon and a slice of brie cheese.  Let cheese melt slightly, then top with basil leaves.  Top with remaining bread and carefully flip.  Let the sandwich finish cooking.  Remove and plate.  Cut the sandwich in half before serving.

Go ahead.  Read the names of these sandwiches and tell me you didn't drool.  Go on.
