Grilled Apple, Ham, and Brie Sandwich


The combo of brie cheese, apple slices, and ham create a fancy grilled cheese sandwich perfect for a weeknight dinner that comes together in practically no time.

Total Time:
20 mins


  • 8 0.5 inch slices sourdough bread

  • 2 ounce low-fat, reduced-sodium sliced cooked ham, cut into bite-size strips

  • 1 ½ ounce brie cheese, sliced

  • ½ cup baby spinach, packed

  • 2 medium tart apples, cored and thinly sliced

  • ½ cup whole cranberry sauce

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil


  1. On four of the bread slices layer ham, cheese, spinach, and apples. Spread the remaining four bread slices with cranberry sauce; place on sandwiches, cranberry sides down. Brush outsides of sandwiches with oil.

  2. Preheat a covered indoor grill, panini press, grill pan, or large skillet. Place sandwiches, half at a time if necessary, in grill or panini press. Cover and cook about 6 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. (If using a grill pan or skillet, place sandwiches on grill pan or skillet. Weight sandwiches down with a heavy skillet [add food cans for more weight] and cook for 2 minutes. Turn sandwiches over, weight down, and cook about 2 minutes more or until golden brown and cheese is melted.)
