Cranberry, Brie, and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese

Hi guys!

Today we have a super easy cranberry, brie, and prosciutto grilled cheese that’s simple enough for a busy weekday lunch, yet fancy enough for the dinner table. We love a grilled cheese any season because it’s so quick and versatile, and I found this version really celebrates winter and all its lovely warmth… but that could just be the melty brie talking.

I’m a total sucker for melty brie.

Cranberry, Brie, and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese This sandwich consists of only a few ingredients, but let me tell you… piled up and grilled together… they’re magic. Pure grilled cheese magic, I tell you!

The cranberry jam is sort of the “good marriage glue” between the salty prosciutto and the intense brie, but if you can’t find any, I think raspberry could be a good sub. Or make your own! I’ll be sharing our recipe at some point this week πŸ˜‰ But there are tons of great recipes out there if you can’t wait!

Cranberry, Brie, and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese – Baker by Nature

Makes 2 sandwiches


4 slices of bread

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1 tablespoon chunks and allowed to soften

4 tablespoons of cranberry jam

(1) 4 oz package of prosciutto

4 oz brie, thinly sliced

Extra butter for the pan; if needed


Heat a large pan or griddle over medium-heat. Place bread on a clean surface, then spread one tablespoon of jam onto each slice of bread. Layer 1/2 of the cheese on one side, and 1/2 of the prosciutto on the other side; repeating for all the slices of bread.

Slather each side of bread with one tablespoon of butter, then place sandwich in the prepared pan and grill on each side for about 3 minutes each, or until the bread has thoroughly crisped and the cheese has begun to melt.

Transfer to a clean plate, and eat at once!

    OMG! Girl, this grilled cheese sandwich of yours looks divine! We love turkey grilled cheese sandwiches after Thanksgiving with provolone. And, after Christmas we do the same with ham and add fancy mustard. But! We adore prosciut! And, brie! So, we must make this soon. By the way, guess what my next post is? Cranberry Spice Jam, LOL! Great minds eat alike. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing!

    Last time I went to the grocery I picked up everything to make these delish things.. I’ve made it for my husband 4 times now! He {and I} are loving this sandwich! Oh and I will continue to follow and use your recipes! Keep up the awesome job :)

    Fantastic, truly. I couldn’t find cranberry jam at the store and didn’t have the will to make it, so I substituted in a cherry raspberry rhubarb jam I have instead. I think it was a decent substitution. It tasted great, in any case,

    Gonna have to buy more proscuitto to go with the rest of my brie, tho. πŸ˜‰

    Well not many people hate grilled cheese sandwiches! My way is to use cranberry sauce (jellied or whole) or some dried cranberries instead of the jam. I use smoked honey ham because it has a lot more flavor than prosciutto. Yummy
