    • Butter: I recommend salted butter to add a little extra flavor to the bread. If all you have is unsalted, that will work too.
    • Bread: I like to use white bread for a more mild flavor and soft, fluffy texture, but feel free to use honey wheat or whole wheat bread instead. 
    • Brie Cheese: You’ll need ⅛ of a cup of sliced brie cheese. 
    • Blueberry Pie Filling: I prefer to use pie filling for some extra sweetness, but feel free to use blueberry jam instead.

    What to Serve with a Blueberry Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    I love to serve this mouthwatering grilled cheese sandwich as breakfast or lunch! It’s excellent on its own, but can also be paired with any tasty side dish of your choice. Here are a few ideas:

    Recipe Tips and Tricks

    • Butter the outside of the bread. You’ll butter one side of each slice of bread—the side that will be on the outside of the sandwich. This adds flavor, but also helps the exterior of the grilled cheese get that golden-brown, crispy texture.
    • Preheat the skillet. It should be nice and hot before you add the sandwich on for the crispiest texture.
    • Cook on medium-high heat. I know it can be tempting to crank the heat up all the way so you can eat sooner, but that will just burn the bread before the cheese is melted.
    • Serve immediately. I recommend enjoying this grilled cheese sandwich hot and fresh. The melty cheese is best right away!

    Variations and Substitutions

    • Add a protein. Make your sandwich a little more filling with a salty layer of prosciutto, bacon, turkey, or ham.
    • Use another cheese. Swap the brie out for fresh mozzarella, gouda, goat cheese, or havarti for a slightly different flavor profile. 
    • Make it sweeter. The blueberry pie filling or jam already adds a delicious layer of sweetness, but you can make your sandwich even sweeter with a drizzle of honey.
    • Try another fruit. Swap the blueberry out for blackberry, strawberry, peach, or even apple for a delightful flavor twist.

    Storage Instructions

    I do not recommend storing leftovers. Grilled cheese sandwiches of any kind are best served right away! 

    What Kind of Cheese Goes with Blueberries?

    I love the buttery, slightly tangy flavor and rich, creamy texture of the brie cheese with the sweeter blueberries, but you can really use any rich, creamy cheese that you love!

    Looking for alternative options? Try this sandwich with mozzarella, gouda, goat cheese, or havarti instead!

    How Do You Cut Brie for Grilled Cheese?

    You’ll just cut the brie into slices for the grilled cheese. You can make these slices as thick or as thin as you would like, depending on how cheesy you like it.

    Now, some prefer to remove the rind of the brie and others like to leave it on. You can do as you like! All it does is add a subtle tangy flavor.

    1. Hi, this recipe looks amazing . I was wondering what is Brie cheese?  Thank you.

      1. It’s a French cheese that is creamy and has a buttery flavour. You can find it with the specialty cheeses at the grocery store.

    2. Linda Jasman says:

      Can u use frozen bluberry

      1. You won’t get the same sweetness and texture with frozen blueberries, but you could try it and see how it turns out for you.

    3. Mundi Herron says:

      I cant wait to make these. I have a question though, should I par- freeze the Brie before using a box grater? Or put through food processor.

    4. Veldon Coburn says:
