Ham and Brie Melts Recipe

Ham and Brie Melts Recipe

Melty cheese, ham and apricot preserves offer a special change of pace from the classic grilled cheese. These quick, crispy sandwiches remind me of baked brie. —Bonnie Bahler, Ellington, Connecticut
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 8 slices multigrain bread
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves, divided
  • 1/2 pound sliced deli ham
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese, rind removed, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened


  • 1. Spread four bread slices with half of the preserves. Layer with ham and cheese. Spread remaining bread with remaining preserves; place over cheese, preserves side down. Spread outsides of sandwiches with butter.
  • 2. In a large skillet, toast sandwiches over medium heat 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
