Course: Main Course


  • bread This sandwich is really nice with a rye or sour dough. Even a multi-grain works. It makes it special and a little fancy. You can of course use plain white, but I prefer the breads with grains and seeds.
  • brie In my grocery store, they only sell the wheels of Brie, but at Costco I found a brick of Brie which is perfect for sandwich. Cut the Brie into 1/2 cm. slices (a little less that 1/4 inch)
  • passion fruit jam This is a little difficult to find. My grocery store had a peach, apricot, passion fruit jam, so I got that and it was really good. If you can’t find a passion fruit jam, a peach or apricot jam will work just as well.
  • thyme Fresh, not dried. Take leaves off the stems.
  • butter Have it at room temperature


  • I’m giving you the ingredients but the amounts depends on how many you want to make.
  • Butter one side of the bread. Flip over, spread jam on the other side and sprinkle thyme leaves. Place 2 slices of Brie on top and cover with the other slice of bread. Butter the top.
  • In a frying pan on medium heat, place sandwich in the pan. Cook until golden on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Flip and cook until the other side is golden and the cheese melts, 3 to 5 more minutes.
  • Serve immediately.


I made 37 of these sandwich for the party. So unless you are making one or two, I suggest setting up a work station.
