I got creative with paninis again. Really just love a grilled sandwich, although this is more like a dessert…
Bread (I used sourdough)
Chocolate (milk or dark)
Butter your bread!
Slice the Brie. I left the rind on, personal preference.
Heat up the panini maker! You can also use a George Foreman grill or make it in the skillet like a grilled cheese.
Place bread butter side down. Stack on the Brie!
Tear up some fresh basil and add it on.
I’ve got a golden ticket!
I used milk chocolate simply because I don’t care for the bitterness of dark chocolate. However, after trying this with the creaminess of the Brie, dark chocolate would have been a nice compliment.
I also sprinkled a little kosher salt and fresh pepper on, nice little salty and spice.
Time to toast!
Let that sit for a few minutes.
Slice in half.
Enjoy this sweet, buttery panini!
