GoGo and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Cheese and fruit pair well, hence the popularity of sandwiches that use Brie and apples. This grilled cheese sandwich uses those same flavors but has a fun twist — the apples are replaced with GoGo squeeZ applesauce.

Ingredients

  • 2  Tablespoons  butter
  • ½  onion, sliced
  • mushrooms, chopped
  • slices sourdough bread
  • large piece of Brie cheese
  • pouch AppleGrape GoGo squeeZ applesauce

Directions

Start by melting one tablespoon of butter in a frying pan. Add the onions and mushrooms and sauté until golden brown.

Spread other tablespoon of butter on the outside of both slices of bread. Layer the cheese, onion, mushroom mixture, and applesauce on one piece of bread before closing the sandwich.

Heat a frying pan, then place the sandwich in the pan to cook, flipping it once after the cheese has started to melt and the bread is brown. The sandwich is done cooking when both sides are browned and the cheese is fully melted.

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.
