Strawberry Bruschetta Grilled Cheese

We love grilled cheese in this house. Cheesy, hot and gooey. It’s the ultimate comfort food. I personally love the classic with yellow American cheese and hot soup on a cold winter day. But grilled cheese sandwich is no longer a cold weather comfort food as there are so many variations from fruit to veggies or plain cheese that could be whipped up at any time.

I made these Strawberry Bruschetta Grilled Cheese sandwiches this week and they were gone in no time! My hubby even took cold leftovers to work to share with couple co-workers.

Strawberries are very much in season now and you can pick up a pint or two at a reasonable price. I normally have ripe strawberries lying around so a Strawberry Bruschetta Grilled Cheese is a perfect way to use some of those leftovers.

I used seven whole grain bread that was on the verge of going moldy but any type of bread will do. Also my new obsession is a coconut oil spread that I’ve been using on everything. It’s a perfect combination of sweet and salty. The rest of the ingredients were on hand: thinly sliced strawberries, fresh basil out of my garden, zest of lemon, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I used brie cheese but any type of white cheese will do. Simple, delicious and happy :)
