Strawberry, Turkey and Brie Grilled Cheese on a white lunch plate

Strawberry, Turkey and Brie Grilled Cheese

5 from 6 reviews

A gourmet grilled cheese sandwich made with Brie, turkey and strawberries!


8 ounces brie, rind removed, and sliced into ½ inch thick slices
8 slices bread (I used ciabatta)
8 ounces sliced smoked turkey (I used 8 slices)
8 fresh basil leaves, rolled and sliced into thin slices (chiffonade)
½ cup sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons pepper jelly
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Whole or halved strawberries for garnish, optional


Layer 4 bread slices evenly with turkey, basil leaves, strawberries and brie.

Spread 1 ½ teaspoons pepper jelly on one side of each of the remaining 4 bread slices. Place bread slices, face down on top of brie. Brush sandwiches with melted butter.

Cook sandwiches, in batches in a preheated Panini press 2 to 3 minutes or till golden brown…or sauté in fry pan until golden brown.  Garnish with fresh berries and basil, if desired.
