Grilled Brie and Goat Cheese Sandwich with Bacon and Green Tomato

Grilled Brie and Goat Cheese Sandwich with Bacon and Green Tomato

I have been going sandwich crazy these last few weeks and my focus has been squarely pointed at both the perfectly ripe field tomatoes and the unripe green tomatoes that are available right now. While I was searching for ideas for yet another sandwich I stumbled across this grilled brie and goat cheese sandwich with bacon and green tomato recipe by Bobby Flay and as soon as I saw it, I knew that I would have to make it. I really liked the sound of combining two amazing cheeses, an ooey gooey brie and a tangy goat cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich along with some salty and crisp bacon and tart slices of green tomatoes! This grilled cheese sandwich is definitely worth making and I have already made it a few times! After the first time I tweaked the recipe a by slicing the green tomato a thinner and frying them in the bacon grease to soften them up a bit as the hard slices kept popping out of the sandwich. What a great way to enjoy some green tomatoes all covered in melted cheese and wrapped in toasty, buttery bread!

Grilled Brie and Goat Cheese Sandwich with Bacon and Green Tomato

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes Servings: 2

A tasty grilled cheese sandwich with crispy bacon and tangy green tomato and covered in ooey gooey melted brie and goat cheese.

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 large green tomato, sliced into 1/8 inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 slices bread (I used sour dough)
  • 2 ounces brie, room temperature
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
  • pepper to taste
  1. Cook the bacon until crisp over medium heat, set aside on paper towels to drain and pour all but 1 tablespoon of the grease from the pan.
  2. Add the green tomato slices, saute for a minute on each side, set aside and wipe the pan clean. (Optional, skip if you prefer crisp tomato slices.)
  3. Butter one side of each slice of bread and place 2 in the pan buttered side down.
  4. Top each with 1/4 of each cheese followed by the bacon, tomato, pepper and finally the remaining slice of bread with the buttered side up.
  5. Grill until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown, about 2-4 minutes per side.

I've just had dinner and yet, after seeing this ooey gooey cheesy salty sandwich, I am ready for round 2! I don't blame you for having to make it right away. I'm not far behind you.

That looks amazing...grilled cheese sandwiches with fancy cheese are the best, and you took it up a notch with TWO fancy cheeses! I've been enjoying all your posts lately. I think I'm going to eat sandwiches all next week because of this photo. :)

Now try that with chipolte mayo on the outside to grill it, instead of the butter.

Love your blog. I found you when I was looking for a recipe to make the Kogi tacos. Made it for some good friends and they loved it. I am making a challenge for myself to make 31 days of cooking with chicken. I will be looking on your site when I have exhausted all my recipes. Thanks for the great inspiration.

This sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen, albeit and fantasticly deliscious one. Wow.

Chris said...

Where is everyone getting these green tomatoes so late in the season?

Great looking sandwich, Kevin!

KB said...

This looks amazing, but are you really using an entire pound of cheese for 2 sandwiches? Is it just me? 8 oz. of cheese per sandwich seems a bit much... I'tm excited to make this!

Lori said...

Wow, oh, wow. You had Brie and then you just had to go ahead and add goat cheese too?! Sounds amazing. I've been sandwich crazy lately too.

You inspired me to run to the kitchen to use my leftover cheese plate brie and goat cheese to create something wonderful. I had a jar of roasted red peppers so I slid one of those guys between the two cheeses spread onto some good sourdough and grilled it in lots of butter. It was delicious and so easy! Thank you! Annnnnd I have a TINY kitchen so I'll be checking out your blog often now :)
