Brie and Raspberry Panini with Hazelnut Spread: 150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Grilled Cheese has been called “America’s Comfort Food”, and it has been a huge food trend in 2012. This past year grilled cheese sandwiches have been featured on gourmet restaurant’s menus, and there has been a huge increase in grilled cheese food trucks across the U.S. This Brie and Raspberry Panini with Hazelnut Spread recipe is one of the 150 recipes in my latest cookbook release “150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches”. This is a new twist on the classic combination of chocolate and Brie. The surprising freshness from the raspberries really puts it over the top. It’s a great dessert sandwich recipe to enjoy during the holidays. You’ll find recipes from breakfast to dessert (as well as condiments) in my newest cookbook which just released 2 months ago.
