Grilled Brie & Pear Sandwich and a Great Excuse to Make One

This grilled brie and pear sandwich is dedicated to National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, which happens every April 12, thanks mostly to bored food bloggers, and cheese industry marketing cartels…I’m looking at you, Wisconsin. 

No matter its origins, this cheesy, savory/sweet, flavor bomb is probably my favorite non-traditional grilled cheese sandwich.

If you’re going to do this, don’t get scared and omit the pepper and thyme. This is required to tip the sweet/savory scale toward the later. Just add a tiny bit your first time, and work up from there. By the way, this grilled cheese was inspired by a cold pear and brie sandwich I had at a café many years ago, and I’ve been doing it hot ever since.

Butter is kind of a key here. It looks like a lot, but you want a seriously crispy crust to fully enjoy the soft, warm cheese and sweet pear. So, if you’re celebrating National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, like any normal person who spends any time on Twitter is, then I hope you consider giving this buttery beauty a try. Enjoy

Impress your guests with inspirational restaurant-style dishes. No need to let on how simple they are to cook. This side of salmon is roasted with white wine, lemon juice and dill and served with buttery hollandaise sauce flavoured with horseradish. Very simple to make for entertaining.

  • Serves: 6
  • Prep time: 10 mins
  • Cooking time: 20 mins
  • Total time: 30 mins
  • Skill level: Bit of effort
  • Costs: Mid-price
  • 45g (1 1/2oz) butter
  • 1kg (2¼lb) side of salmon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill leaves
  • 150ml (5fl oz) dry white wine
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

For the hollandaise:

  • 3 medium egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white wine
  • 150g (5oz) butter
  • 1 tbsp hot horseradish

Buying a pot of Tesco Finest Hollandaise Sauce will save some time over the busy Christmas period

  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Line a roasting tin with a sheet of foil. Rub some of the butter on the foil. Lay the salmon on the foil, skin-side down. Season, then sprinkle with the dill.
  2. Pour over the white wine and sprinkle with the lemon zest and juice. Dot with the rest of the butter. Roast for 20 minutes until the fish is tender, flaking and just turning golden.
  3. To make the hollandaise sauce: Whizz together egg yolks, lemon juice and wine with a pinch of salt in a food processor. Heat the butter until it is very hot. Give the egg mix another quick whizz. With the motor running slowly, drizzle in the very hot melted butter, then add the horseradish.
  4. Serve the salmon warm or cold with the hollandaise.

Tarte Tatin – See What the Others Aren’t Willing to Show You

When I looked at some other tarte tatin recipes on
YouTube, I noticed that very few showed the “flip on to the plate” step.
They would just skip from the out of the oven shot to the final beauty shot. The
reason of course, is that very few tarte tatins come out of the hot pan
perfectly, and if they showed that, then you may not think they are as awesome as their profile says they are.

So, it’s with much pride that I show you the whole ugly
scene that is the tarte tatin dismount. The good news is, it’s very simple to
slap everything back on the crust before it cools, and none will be the wiser.
This is even easier if you’re doing a version with very soft and tender apples
and lots of caramel, which is my preference, as you’ll see.

If you do a Google image search for a classic, old recipe
like this, you usually see a lot of photos that look alike, but that’s not
necessarily so with tarte tatin. You’ll see an amazingly diverse array, which
is fascinating since they were all made with the same few basic ingredients.
Most of this is a result of cooking time in the pan before baking.

Some feature firm, barely cooked apples, while others cook
the fruit all the way down to a buttery, caramelized jam. The beauty of a
recipe that uses just pastry dough, butter, apples and sugar to make the magic,
is that no matter how yours comes out you’ll enjoy it. Of course, you’ll want
to hedge your bets with some vanilla bean ice cream to be safe. I hope you give
this classic French treat a try soon. Enjoy!

3 large apples, quartered
3 tbsp butter
3/4 cup sugar
pie dough for a single crust
