Hot Buttery Brie Melts

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 6 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
If you don't have a panini press, place sandwiches in a hot skillet over medium heat. Press sandwiches with a cast-iron skillet or other heavy weight, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-oz.) Brie round or wedge
  • 1 (12-oz.) French baguette
  • 1/2 cup jalapeño jelly
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

How to Make It

  1. Trim and discard rind from Brie. Cut Brie into 1/4-inch-thick slices, and set aside.

  2. Cut baguette into 4 equal pieces; halve pieces lengthwise.

  3. Heat jelly in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro. Spread mixture evenly on cut sides of each bread slice. Layer 4 bread slices, jelly sides up, evenly with Brie; top with remaining bread slices, jelly sides down.

  4. Cook sandwiches, in batches, in a preheated panini press 3 minutes or until grill marks appear and cheese melts.
