Cranberry, Brie, and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese

Today we have a super easy cranberry, brie, and prosciutto grilled cheese that’s simple enough for a busy weekday lunch, yet fancy enough for the dinner table. We love a grilled cheese any season because it’s so quick and versatile, and I found this version really celebrates winter and all its lovely warmth… but that could just be the melty brie talking.
This sandwich consists of only a few ingredients, but let me tell you… piled up and grilled together… they’re magic. Pure grilled cheese magic, I tell you!

The cranberry jam is sort of the “good marriage glue” between the salty prosciutto and the intense brie, but if you can’t find any, I think raspberry could be a good sub. Or make your own! I’ll be sharing our recipe at some point this week 😉 But there are tons of great recipes out there if you can’t wait!
Cranberry, Brie, and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese – Baker by Nature

Makes 2 sandwiches

  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1 tablespoon chunks and allowed to soften
  • 4 tablespoons of cranberry jam
  • (1) 4 oz package of prosciutto
  • 4 oz brie, thinly sliced
  • Extra butter for the pan; if needed
  • Heat a large pan or griddle over medium-heat. Place bread on a clean surface, then spread one tablespoon of jam onto each slice of bread. Layer 1/2 of the cheese on one side, and 1/2 of the prosciutto on the other side; repeating for all the slices of bread.
  • Slather each side of bread with one tablespoon of butter, then place sandwich in the prepared pan and grill on each side for about 3 minutes each, or until the bread has thoroughly crisped and the cheese has begun to melt.
  • Transfer to a clean plate, and eat at once!
