Smoky Portobello mushrooms and caramelized onions are surrounded by creamy brie in this grilled brie cheese sandwich, a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich that's packed with goodness.
Move over plain old grilled cheese sandwich, because I have a grilled cheese sandwich that tastes sooo much better. It's packed with smoky portobello mushrooms, sweet caramelized onions, and gooey brie cheese on sourdough bread. It's creamy, crispy and in one word, Yum!
It's National Grilled Cheese Month and the #SundaySupper tastemakers are sharing their favorite gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. I am not a big sandwich eater, but I have to admit, it's really hard to turn down a grilled cheese sandwich - especially when it's filled with all kinds of tasty ingredients. Smoked paprika adds a smoky flavor to the mushrooms which are baked until almost crispy, and a touch of balsamic adds a little more sweetness to the onions.
This sandwich can take a bit of time to make, but it's so worth it! The caramelized onions and mushrooms can be made ahead of time while you are preparing another meal perhaps? Here is a recipe for caramelized onions. Serve this sandwich with a side salad for healthy dinner or lunch. Here's the recipe. . .
