YUM! This is a wonderful way to take a classic like grilled cheese and give it a "gourmet" twist. I love pears and brie cheese so I had to give this a try and even my husband who was a bit skept...

I used dried thyme and my pears were hard (but tasty!), so I am not sure how much it affected the dish. I feel like the pear taste was not prominent enough, and that the pears didn't stick well ...

My vegetarian daughter was coming for lunch and I thought I would do a search for Brie and found this recipe. Well we made it exactly as called for and it was a terrific hit! I didn't realize ...

The ultimate grilled cheese sandwich.

Loved this recipe! I actually added prosciutto ham and used sourdough bread. It was amazing and my husband and 4 year old loved it as well.

Wow!! What an awesome flavor combination and SO easy-peasy!! Great recipe!! I also tried it with Sourdough bread and it was da' bomb!! More grilled cheese recipes please!

I made this the other night for the family. They are not picky eaters but this is a strange but wonderful combination and we all enjoyed this recipe. I even went way out of my way to purchase so...

More brie!

It was delicious, quick and easy to prep. and very, very easy to eat with an arugula salad on the side, sabrosisimo.

Yep, I'll make it again
