Blueberry Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

There’s a new bread in town and it’s delicious! Dempster’s has recently launched the new Dempster’s Honey Wheat Bread for a limited time. It’s delicious for breakfast with a little bit of butter or honey. I also created these Honey Almond Breakfast Cups perfect for a lazy Saturday morning.

What’s unique about this new bread is that it’s made with Canadian honey. Honey right now is hot with its Canadian production at an all-time high. I often use honey in recipes as a replacement for refined sugar. You’ve probably seen lots of products with honey recently on your grocery store shelves. 1,504 honey related products have been launched between 2010 and 2015 and most are in the food category. That’s a lot of sweetness and I love it!

Made with real Canadian honey, Dempster’s Honey Wheat Bread also has no artificial flavours or colours. Grab a loaf on your next shopping trip! Don’t wait too long to try it because it’s only available until June 14, 2017!

I was inspired to create something sweet with the bread, but wanted a recipe that you could also eat for lunch. I could have done a regular grilled cheese sandwich which are always a hit in my home, but I wanted something a little different. I came up with the most decadent, mouthwatering dessert grilled cheese sandwich you’ll ever have. Meet the Blueberry Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich. You’ll think your lunch is actually dessert! It’s the best of both worlds.

You may be thinking cheese and blueberries and not sure if that combination works. Let me tell you that it does and it works WELL! Brie cheese complements blueberries perfectly. I knew it would work because I’ve made tarts with blueberries and Brie in the past and loved the flavour combination.

I couldn’t have picked a better bread for this recipe. Dempster’s Honey Wheat Bread has a rich, buttery taste and the hint of honey is exactly what you’ll want for this simple recipe. It may look complex, but it’s so easy to make.

My family gobbled these sandwiches up for lunch and then asked me to make more. Good thing I had a couple extra loaves of Dempster’s Honey Wheat Bread to satisfy their request.

If you didn’t want to use blueberry pie filling in this recipe, you could switch it out for fresh blueberries or blueberry jam. I liked the extra sweetness of pie filling and I had some already in my pantry so that’s what I used for this recipe.
