Gourmet Grilled Cheese – Gluten Free

Grilled Brie and Fig Sandwhich

One of the biggest challenges I’ve had with going gluten-free is finding good bread – which is why I’m so psyched to have discovered a bread that makes a good grilled cheese! I like Udi’s Whole Grain Bread – it seems dense and heavy when it’s in the package, but don’t be fooled… Once grilled or toasted, the texture becomes soft and light, and, as you can tell from this picture, gets the perfect crunchy toasted deliciousness on the outside.

For this version, I used brie (my favorite is St. Andre’s) and Trader Joe’s Fig Butter. I also plan on making this using real fruit slices – apples? pears? yum!

How do you make your grilled cheese gourmet? I’ll be looking for new options with my new bread!

  1. Wow! This sounds great. I’ll have to check out Whole Foods and see if they sell this Udi’s bread, because I really do miss grilled cheese. I wonder if you could make a pseudo- panini with goat cheese, brie, and cut up pieces of cherry tomatoes (that might make it on my blog someday soon)….Thanks for posting!

    • I bet they do! I got mine at Trader Joe’s, if you have one nearby. Check the bread aisle and the freezer section – sometimes it’s there. Goat cheese, brie and cherry tomatoes sounds perfect! That may have to be my next version 🙂
