Ingredients

  • 1/4  Cup  butter, softened
  • slices soft white bread
  • 4  Tablespoons  sweet Thai chile sauce
  • 1/2  small red onion, sliced
  • 6  Ounces  Brie, sliced and rind removed
  • small peach, pitted and sliced

Directions

Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Butter one side of each slice of bread with 1 tablespoon butter.

Arrange the bread, butter side down, on the baking tray.

Spread 1 tablespoon of the sweet chile sauce on the unbuttered side of each piece of bread.

Divide the onions, cheese, and peach slices evenly among 2 slices of the bread. Season with salt. Place the remaining 2 slices of bread on top of the filling, butter-side up.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.

Add as many sandwiches as you can fit to the skillet, and press them down with another cast-iron skillet on top. Cook until the underside is golden and toasty, and the cheese begins to melt, about 3-4 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and cook for another 3 minutes, until the underside is deep golden brown.

Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Slice in half, and enjoy!

Brie Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Brie Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.

Brie Wine Pairing

Rich white wines and full-bodied reds go well with most cheeses and cheese-based dishes. Some specific recommendations: chardonnay or pinot blanc with goat cheese; dry chenin blanc with earthy cheeses; rosé or sercial madeira with melted-cheese appetizers; port with blue cheese (especially stilton); amontillado sherry or syrah/shiraz with strong cheeses; olooros or palo cortado sherry with creamy cheeses; merlot or carménère with mild cheeses; cabernet sauvignon, malbec, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, or petite sirah with cheddar- or gouda-type cheeses; nero d'avola with full-flavored Spanish or Italian cheeses; sangiovese with dishes using parmigiano-reggiano and similar cheeses.
