 Oh yes. You read the title correctly. Cheesy garlic bread sandwiches. Garlic butter smothered bread filled with soft brie, crisped and browned to melting gooey perfection. Perfection! I kid you not, this is a sandwich that will make you lick the plate!!! It is my present to you so we can all get through Tuesday and bounce into the Wednesday – and let’s face it, after that it is only a run and a jump to the weekend ;-).

Now lets me start by saying there is nothing healthy about this recipe! If you are doing low carb, low fat, paleo or counting calories, then I am afraid unless you are into tormenting yourself with pictures of melted cheese, you might want to stop reading now. But if like me you love a bit of melted cheese, then drool over your computer……

Honestly I am in cheese sandwich heaven. This recipe came to me in the middle of the night. I had been looking a pictures of what has been called ‘crack bread’, a term I really really dislike, but a dish I really really like. It has been done and pinned so many times and I have to say I have found several recipe that I wouldn’t change at all. Which is great for my cooking, but not so good for my food blog. Anyhow, maybe that is why I was dreaming of garlic bread???

I should mention I wasn’t just dreaming of garlic bread. This wasn’t a dream where I jumped into a swimming pool full of buttery garlic bread, akin to how Winnie the Pooh jumps into honey, although that would have been a great dream!!!

This was much more of a riding through France on pedal bikes and stopping at beautiful French cafés, kind of dream. Actually there is nothing ‘kind of’ about it! That is exactly how it went, I was cycling through France with my sister and Colin Firth. Which is odd as I don’t really cycle very often AND I don’t know Colin Firth. Who knows what was going on in my crazy dream brain!

But what I do know is we stopped at a small café and ordered toasted brie sandwiches that came with a side of melted garlic butter. (It was a great dream!!!) And here in the wonderful dream world my cheesy garlic bread sandwiches were born. Being a cheese, garlic and bread fan, I knew I had to try it, and due to the nature of my addiction to bread, cheese, garlic, and all other foods that help keep me out of skinny jeans, I had the ingredients ready in the fridge/pantry.

And let me tell you, the sandwich lived up to the dream sandwich. Yum!!! If Stew wasn’t currently doing a low carb diet (don’t ask!!) I would be making this for dinner for the next week. I might still do that and just serve him the side salad 😉 Or is that too cruel????? If you are reading Stew….I joke 😉 I promise I won’t do that x

So whilst I go and check that Stew is still talking to me, I will leave you with the wonderful and slightly addictive Cheesy Garlic Bread Sandwich. Enjoy!

Servings: 4
Author: Claire | Sprinkles and Sprouts
Ingredients
  • 8 slices of good crusty white bread
  • 250 g butter
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 300 g Brie
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
Instructions
  1. Put the garlic cloves into a small pan of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes until soft. Drain well.
  2. Use the back of your knife to crush the garlic to a paste.
  3. Dry the garlic pan out and gently melt the butter.
  4. Add the garlic paste and stir to combine.
  5. Use a pastry brush to cover the slices of bread with the melted butter.
  6. Cut the brie into thick slices.
  7. Place 4 slices of the bread butter side down onto a baking tray lined with cooking paper.
  8. Arrange the brie over the slices, season lightly with salt and pepper and the parsley.
  9. Use the remaining bread to cover the brie.
  10. Bake in the oven for 6 minutes, then carefully turn the sandwiches over and cook for a further 6-8 minutes.
  11. Allow to cool ever so slightly before eating (as molten cheese burns! A lot!!!) and try to remember to share.

      Melty gooey goodness is the perfect way to describe this 🙂

    Hi Claire! Thanks for the note about the soup! I make homemade creamy tomato soup with my home canned stewed tomatoes, whizzed with my stick blender, and add a knob or two or butter and enough cream to make it creamy. So easy and so good! 🙂

    A dream about biking in France with Colin Firth sounds like the perfect way to dream. Add a picnic with these sandwiches and I wouldn’t want to dream or eat anything else.

    Really like the melty cheese but you elevated this sandwich with the garlic bread. This is a grown up grilled cheese!

      Thank you Peter. All grown ups should have a grilled cheese option 🙂

  4. How could you make garlic bread any better? Add cheese! What a brilliant idea. Thanks for the warning about letting it cool, I would definitely dive in to fast and burn my mouth!

  7. Brie is a wonderful cheese, especially when it is warm and gooey.

    Hi Claire! These are grilled cheese heaven! Brie is one of y favorite cheeses, it’s just so oozingly good! I like the fact that they are baked, no having to stand over the pan to make sure they are not burning! Dunking them in creamy tomato soup would not be bad! 🙂

      Brie is one of our favourites too. My boys can polish off a baked brie between them, no problems!

      Dipped into tomato soup would be fabulous! Might add that into the notes of the recipe 🙂
