Brie, Avocado and Mustard Melts

"I was scrounging around in the fridge, looking for something interesting to make lunch one Saturday. I found a VERY ripe avocado, some left-over brie and a bit of mustard........put them together, grilled them and was surprised at the gourmet result of a lunch made from leftovers!"

Ready In:
4 melts


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 60 g brie cheese (about half a small round)
  • 2 tablespoons of mild mustard
  • 4 slices bread, of your choice
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  • Turn on oven grill element/broiler.
  • Cut avocado in half.
  • Slice brie into thin slices.
  • When grill /broiler is heated, place bread under and toast one side.
  • Turn bread over and grill/broil until other side is just beginning to toast.
  • Take bread out and spread lightly toasted side thinly with mustard.
  • Spread 1/4 avocado flesh onto each slice of bread - it will be thick, but that's OK!
  • Cover all the bread with avocado, so it doesn't burn when it goes back under the grill/broiler.
  • Season with salt, pepper or other seasonings to taste.
  • Arrange brie slices over avocado.
  • Put back under grill/broiler until brie is melting and has started to brown (unti I made this, I didn't know brie COULD brown!).
  • Serve at once, while hot.

  1. So quick, simple & tasty.
  2. I made these last night and they are fabulous. Can you believe I forgot the mustard? I added a little extra salt, and they were gone in a flash!
  3. These were heavenly! Avocado and brie both have such mild flavors so one does not compete with the other. Had people asking me for the recipe. These are definitely a great snack for an outdoor appetizer party or a spring brunch.
  4. Definately 5 stars plus - I served these on New Years Eve as one of several appetizers - They got rave reviews. I sprinkled a little paprika on some of them just for color. Lovely blend of flavors Thanks for posting the recipe Sussan
  5. Fabulous Fathers Day Breakfast! This just had to be a winner with all the yummy ingredients. I used Dijon mustard and followed the recipe exactally. Thanks for sharing!
