Brie and Raspberry Panini with Hazelnut Spread: 150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

December 12, 2012

Grilled Cheese has been called “America’s Comfort Food”, and it has been a huge food trend in 2012. This past year grilled cheese sandwiches have been featured on gourmet restaurant’s menus, and there has been a huge increase in grilled cheese food trucks across the U.S. This Brie and Raspberry Panini with Hazelnut Spread recipe is one of the 150 recipes in my latest cookbook release “150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches”. This is a new twist on the classic combination of chocolate and Brie. The surprising freshness from the raspberries really puts it over the top. It’s a great dessert sandwich recipe to enjoy during the holidays. You’ll find recipes from breakfast to dessert (as well as condiments) in my newest cookbook which just released 2 months ago. To order for Christmas gifts click here.

Brie and Raspberry Panini with Hazelnut Spread

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 8 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
8 slices sourdough bread (1⁄2-inch thick slices)
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1⁄4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
4 ounces Brie, thinly sliced
1⁄4 cup fresh raspberries, chopped
1. Preheat panini grill to medium, if using.

2. Brush one side of each bread slice equally with butter. Place bread on a work surface, buttered side down. Spread 4 bread slices equally with chocolate hazelnut spread. Top with Brie and raspberries. Cover with remaining bread slices, buttered side up, and press together gently.

3. Place sandwiches on preheated panini grill or in a large skillet over medium heat and cook, turning once if using a skillet, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Substitute 8 brioche slices for sourdough bread.

My mom made these the other day for breakfast but used raspberry jam instead. It was AMAZING! (we made them in a frying pan though) Today she made another one for breakfast but used raspberries - I have to say that the raspberry jam was better than just the raspberries. Thanks!

Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you just could do with some p.c. to force the message house a little bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

I believe everything pposted made a lot of sense. However, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer headline? I am not suggesting yiur information isn't solid., howver suppose you added a post title that geabbed a person's attention? I mean Ingredients, Inc.Brie and Raspberry Panini with Hazelnut Spread: 150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they cfeate news headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to geet people interested about everything've got tto say. Justt my opinion, it woupd bring your posts a little livelier.
