Bacon Brie Grilled Cheese

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

Old-school grilled cheese has its place, but my version stacks spinach, apple and Brie on pumpernickel. For a more compact sandwich, press a heavy pan on it while toasting. —George Wilkins, Mays Landing, New Jersey

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese, cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 8 slices pumpernickel bread
  • 8 cooked bacon strips
  • 1 medium apple, thinly sliced


  1. In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper until blended. Add spinach; toss to coat.
  2. Place half of the cheese on four bread slices. Layer with bacon, spinach mixture, apple and remaining cheese. Top with remaining bread; brush outsides of sandwiches with remaining oil.
  3. In a large skillet or grill pan, toast sandwiches over medium heat 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
