Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

On my holiday visiting my sister and family, it is safe to say that we ate a lot of food, good food!! We cooked so much food at each meal you would think we were feeding an army instead of just the few of us.
One of our meals was a brunch we had on one of the first days of my holiday. Brunch because usually this is something you would eat for lunch and we had consumed a couple of pots of coffee by that time for breakfast.

These Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are not ordinary. You could say they have a bit of yummy attitude. We liked them so much we went out that day and got more ingredients to make them again the next day.

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

1 loaf very fresh Sourdough bread, cut in thick slices
1 Wheel of Camembert Cheese, sliced thickly
Lots of Fresh Basil Leaves.
Chunks of Good Quality Milk Chocolate

Layer Camembert Cheese over one slice of Sourdough bread, Layer Basil Leaves all over the Cheese Layer and then spread lots of Chocolate Chunks all over the Basil. Top with another slice of Sourdough bread. Butter generously the outside of each of the Sourdough bread slices and grill slowly on a Grill Pan until the sandwich is nicely browned and the Cheese and the Chocolate Chips are all melted and gooey!!
Slice and enjoy.

This tastes like heaven. You can taste the yeastiness and freshness of the bread, the creaminess and richness of the cheese and a hint of the spiciness of the Fresh Basil and the sweetness of the Chocolate all melted and melded together.
An ordinary grilled cheese sandwich will never seem the same again!!

This sandwich sounds delicious. I am always on the look out for a different take on a grilled cheese as it is one of our favorite meals. Usually it's just cheddar and thinly sliced onion. Never thought to use Camembert and basil. We love basil and will definitely try this recipe along with the camembert. Thanks for sharing it.

Hello, a grilled cheese recipe like this is most unusual. Each spring and summer , I grew basil in my little kitchen garden. I will have to try the fresh basil with cheese and , yumm , chocolate all melted together.
