You can eat it alone, with chips, a bowl of tomato soup, or a glass of wine. There is no going wrong with this easy sandwich.
Make the bacon a few days ahead, so when you are ready for your sourdough brie grilled cheese, you can whip it up in no time!

🔪 How to Make Brie Grilled Cheese with Bacon
1. Assemble the Sandwich: Spread butter on one slice of bread. Set the bread, butter side down on a plate. Top with brie, bacon, and cheddar cheese. Spread butter on another slice of bread, and set that on the cheddar cheese, butter side up.
2. Cook: Set a skillet over medium-low heat. Once hot, add your sandwich. Cook until the bread is golden brown. Flip and cook the other side until it's golden brown.
Cooking bacon in the oven is much easier than on the skillet. Preheat your oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay the bacon slices on it, don't overlap the bacon. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
- Tomato Soup
- Roasted Potatoes
You can eat the rind, it's safe to eat, but since we are using this brie for grilled cheese, you will want to remove it.
After cutting off the rind, cut the brie into ¼-inch thick slices.
