Grilled Brioche with Brie, Dark Chocolate and Blueberries! Grill Away!

Grilled Brioche With Brie, Dark Chocolate, and Blueberries
Makes 1 sandwich

This grilled cheese can get a bit messy so I recommend enjoying it with a fork and knife (though I did manage to cut it in half and pick it up for the photos). If for some reason you can’t find brioche, challah is an excellent substitute. I used a 60-percent bittersweet chocolate but this would also be wonderful with a darker chocolate or a milk chocolate! The chocolate doesn’t need to melt completely into the sandwich; in fact, it’s better if it stays slightly solid in the middle while melted around the outside. It will give the grilled cheese a nice bite.

½ cup fresh blueberries
1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar (plus more for dusting)
1-2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 slices brioche
3½ – 4 ounces Wisconsin brie
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate

Place the blueberries in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Swirl the pan periodically as the berries become darker in color and the juices begin to release, approximately 5-6 minutes. Remove from the heat and use a potato masher to mash the blueberries and make a compote. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar.

Heat a large skillet over medium or medium low heat (use medium low if you don’t want to rush building the grilled cheese). Butter both sides of the brioche and once the pan is hot, lay both slices down in the pan. Once they’re golden brown, flip them over. While the other sides brown, carefully layer the brie on top of one slice and place the chocolate on top of the brie. Spoon the blueberry compote on top of the chocolate. When the bottoms of the brioche are golden brown, place the plain slice on top to finish building the sandwich.  Dust with Sugar and SERVE IMMEDIATELY.  This article courtesy of Yahoo.com FOOD!
