Grilled Wild Mushroom and Brie Cheese Sandwich

"These are decadent and wonderful and give a whole new meaning to "grilled cheese". Be sure to use a very good sourdough and the freshest of mushrooms. Note: This is a difficult sandwich to turn in the pan, but definitely worth the hassle. Enjoy!"

directions

  • Saute the mushrooms in the olive oil in a medium sized pan for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the shallots and garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Add the chopped herbs.
  • Add the white wine and reduce until the liquid is evaporated.
  • Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper and set aside.
  • Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place the butter side down on four slices of the bread in a large non-stick fry pan at medium-low heat.
  • Divide the mushrooms into four and place them evenly on the four slices of bread.
  • Top the mushrooms with the Brie and cover with the other slices of buttered bread. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown; then turn and cook on the other side for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  • Cut and serve immediately.

    Gourmet Adult Grilled Cheese-what a great idea!!! :) I couldn't find fresh oyster mushrooms, only dried, so I just added extra shiitakes. This was easy and made a delicious dinner with a green salad. These will be made again! (P.S.-to make them easier to turn, I stuck 2 toothpicks in each one, to help hold them together. Worked great) Made for TOP FAVORITES of 2009 COOKBOOKS TAG GAME.

    I had this sandwich at a local restaurant and it is divine. The only thing they do differently was add a light spread of dijon mustard on the bread.

    So good and tastes fancy! I made this with button and baby portabella mushrooms. For the fresh herbs I used parsley, chives and basil. Cut the recipe down for just 1 sandwich but had extra mushrooms so I can make another one later in the week for lunch. Made for Zaar Stars.

    Oh, boy, is this yummy! I love grilled cheese, and I love sauteed mushrooms, so there was no question that I would love this. I couldn't find oyster mushrooms, so I added some re hydrated chantarelles instead. Porcini would also be good in this. I love the combination of the mushrooms, herbs, and shallot- this would be wonderful over a steak for dinner, then leave a few leftovers to make this sandwich for lunch! For the herbs, I used basil and thyme, since they were the best looking in the garden right now. Thanks for a wonderful lunch!

    Annacia these are fantastic! I loved them, used the exact mushrooms, i did use light rye instead of sourdough bc it was what i had and it has a bit of sour taste in it too. the only change i might make is to add some more brie on top of the mushrooms after i turn it over :)
