Roasted Apple and Brie Grilled Cheese with Thyme-Infused Butter


apple and brie grilled cheese

We won’t lie: there’s a lot going on in this grilled cheese. Roasted apples, thickly sliced brie, thyme-infused butter, peppery arugula, sweet honey, and tangy mayo to be exact. But the extra steps are well worth it once you take your first bite of this gooey sandwich, which strikes a perfect balance of sweet and tart, crunchy and creamy. 

The ultimate tried-and-true secret to making a perfect grilled cheese is to slather the outsides (pan-facing sides) of the bread in mayonnaise. It sounds gross–especially for those of you unfortunate souls who turn your noses up at mayo in the first place– but it soaks into the bread during the panfrying process and lends a tangy flavor to the sandwich that’ll make you wish you’d tried this trick years ago.
