Plum, Bacon, Blue Cheese & Brie Grilled Cheese | #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

Ripe juicy plum, touches of sweet honey, the always satisfying salty/smokey/meaty bacon, brie melting all over it, and a touch of pungent blue cheese to pull it all together! This was probably one of the most interesting flavour profiles out of all the grilled cheeses I have done, and I loved it!

I was envisioning this one before going to bed, and thought of the plum, bacon, brie combo, then realized I had a tiny chunk of blue cheese in my fridge, and thought OOOH that would be perfect! Of course, ones memory is always a bit muddled when you wake up, and I nearly forgot to put the blue cheese on! Fortunately at the last minute I realized something was missing, I tossed it in and started grilling that cheese! It still would have been good without the blue cheese, but it added such a great flavour that finished the sandwich off perfectly.

Moral of the story: Add the blue cheese! (even though it’s such a small amount)
