Blackberry, Brie & “Bacon” Vegan Grilled Cheese


Blackberry, Brie & “Bacon” Vegan Grilled Cheese: all the flavours you love in a charcuterie board, in the form of a grilled cheese! This sandwich is SO good and a perfect balance of savoury and sweet. The vegan bacon adds a crunchy texture and perfectly saltiness, layered between two slices of soft sourdough bread with local blackberry jam, and vegan cashew-based brie. This sandwich is pan-fried in a cast iron skillet until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden and crispy. Give this a try immediately for the perfect summery levelled-up grilled cheese that shows everyone how gourmet you really are!

Grilled cheese was always my go-to lunch as a kid, and where I found all of my creativity in the kitchen! I had to throw together different ingredients that I found in the fridge, so naturally, I gravitated towards purchasing better ingredients as I found out what worked and what didn’t! Now, working with all vegan ingredients can be a challenge, but when you hit something you like, such as this amazing combo, there’s nothing better!
