ham and brie breakfast grilled cheese

I can't even begin to describe how crazy I am about Joy the Baker's new cookbook, Homemade Decadence! I have a list a mile long of sweets I want to make, but this savory breakfast grilled cheese stood out to me as an omg-I-need-to-make-this-now situation.

The brie-cherry-ham-mustard flavors are decadent, a little sweet, and just all-out fantastic. All that between two buttery slices of brioche... HEAVENLY!

Breakfast Grilled Cheese (from Homemade Decadence)
makes 1 sandwich

you'll need:
2 slices brioche bread 
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
about 3 slices black forest ham
1 tablespoon cherry jam
2 oz. brie, sliced into thin pieces
butter, for the pan

First, assemble the sandwich: spread the mustard on one slice of bread and the cherry jam on the other. Pile the ham on top of the mustard, and the brie on top of the cherry jam. Sandwich the slices together.

Melt a bit of butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add the sandwich and cook until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 6 minutes.

Cut into slices and enjoy immediately!
