Let’s talk grilled cheese shall we?

I love that it has an entire month dedicated to it.  AKA essentially the best month ever.

There are a lot of foods that I consider comfort food but there’s only one that I go to at all times of the year, at any time of the day, and in any mood.  That my friend is the mighty grilled cheese sandwich.  I love the simple combination of two slices of white bread and some american cheese that you get at your local diner; to the artisanal versions you can make at home or even grilled cheese shops (yes these exist)!

Pair it with a giant bowl of tomato soup and then I’m really happy!

Gallo Family Vineyards understands the grilled cheese love and the fact that it’s a perfect pairing for a glass of Pinot Grigio or Pinot Noir.

Of course way back in the day my grilled cheese tastes weren’t as eloquent as they are today with this combination of brie, raspberries and honey.  Ready for a shameful confession? I used to love making grilled cheese in the microwave.

I know. I know.  It’s really gross now when I think about but back then, it was an easy after school snack of a few slices of cheese stuck between bread and heated up for a minute until it was melty.  This wasn’t a once in a while thing either, I’m talking 1-2 times a week.

I hang my head in a bit of shame when I think back to those days.

I’m really glad that I taught myself the proper way to grill up (grill is our keyword here) this mighty sandwich and if you remember correctly we went over those steps last year.

Since those instructions are all out of the way, it’s time to think about what’s actually going into the sandwich.  Normally I veer towards the savory side with my grilled cheese but this time around I was feeling a little sweet with my savory and some ooze.

No cheese oozes better than brie and it’s a perfect compliment to fresh berries and honey.  The most difficult part was choosing the type of brie.  Seriously, go to the cheese counter and take a look at all the varieties, I stood there for a good five minutes before giving in and asking the cheesemonger which one to purchase.  His opinion was that goat brie was exactly what the raspberries and honey need and I couldn’t agree more.  A little funk, a little tart and sweet and plenty of ooze.  All to wash down with a glass of Gallo Pinot Grigio, although I think their Pinot Noir would be a perfect fit as well.

  4. Drizzle about 1 teaspoon of honey on top of the raspberries and top the sandwich with the remaining bread, butter side up.

    I kind of wish I knew that microwave trick as a kid, lol! In other news, I love this flavor combo, and I need to make it ASAP! I love Brie cheese, and for whatever reason have never made it as a grilled cheese!

      I don’t know Nichole, when I think back to it that “grilled cheese” in the microwave was pretty gross!
