Brie cheese makes for an excellent base of a quick grilled sandwich, and not many people actually use it that much.

Try putting small pieces of brie in between your toasts and season it using herbs such as Herbes de Provence or oregano before grilling. The condiments will nicely mix with the cheese during the melting process.

Remember that most types of brie cheese melt much faster than regular cheese so take that into consideration while preparing your tasty grilled sandwiches filled with brie goodness.

A bonus thing is that the brie cheese is in general one of the cheapest types of soft-ripened cheeses that share many characteristics with blue cheeses. Healthy and cost efficient!

Consider using baguettes

Cut a baguette in thin pieces (as seen on the picture) and then heat them up in your sandwich grill until they become crispy and slightly browned. Be careful not to burn them.

After that you can either open up your toaster and carefully place a small piece of easily-meltable cheese (such as brie cheese) and wait until it melts and spreads on the cut baguette, or take the baguette out of your sandwich grill and then add your favorite toppings.

Adding pre-made Bruschetta (which you can buy at most convenience stores) is another great idea here. Just remember to place it on top of the bread after toasting your cut baguette!

Experiment with seasonings

As I like to say: “There is no such thing as “too much cheese”. Jokes aside, double the amount of cheese in your standard grilled toast and join the beautiful world of proper grilled cheese!

If you usually use thin sliced cheese for your toasts (and I know for a fact many people do), you might want to consider buying a small block of cheese of your choice, cutting a nice thick rectangle shaped piece and putting it inside your sandwich before grilling.

Just mind that to achieve best results, the piece of cheese inside your sandwich should be a little smaller than the sandwich itself, as during the melting process the excessive cheese can leak out of your sandwich and make an unwanted mess inside your sandwich grill.

Try different sauces

Using more and less sophisticated sauces with your simple grilled toasts is a way to diversify your 5-min sandwich snacks and make them less boring.

Step outside of your ketchup ‘n mustard comfort zone!

You can add the sauces either before the grilling process (put them inside your sandwich) or afterwards. It’s more common to do so after your sandwiches are ready however both options can yield different results depending on the sauce you use. Experiment and find out what’s the best solution for you!
