Balsamic Blackberry Basil Grilled Cheese is a simple sandwich that is sweet with a little touch of savory from the peppery basil and balsamic. It’s incredibly easy to assemble and doesn’t require any cooking other than a toaster!

 

As I mentioned in my Blackberry Glazed Brussels Sprouts and Broccoli earlier this week, you will have some balsamic blackberry jam leftover from making the glaze. This is just a clever way of using the leftovers, you don’t have to make the glaze in order to make this. Although as Thanksgiving is approaching, I would make it anyway.

What you can do is mixing fresh blackberries with balsamic glaze or just blackberry jam and balsamic glaze. I just like a hint of the savory in this, so I also used blackberry jam and fresh blackberries on top.

Toast your favorite kind of bread. Spread cream cheese on two slices of toasted bread. On the one slice of bread: spread a thin layer of the balsamic blackberry  jam (or balsamic glaze + blackberry jam), spread another thin layer with blackberry jam. Cover with a small handful of fresh blackberries and fresh basil leaves. And an optional drizzle of maple syrup. Cover with the other cream cheese spreaded toast. Indulge!

 

This is so delicious and a perfect way to use any berries you may have around. You don’t need fresh berries either, but it is preferable. When you crave that sweet breakfast, this is the thing this season!

Recipe Notes

* This is the leftovers from the Blackberry Glazed Brussels Sprouts and Broccoli. I highly recommend this for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but if you don't want to make the blackberry glaze you can make a quick fix right now: 1 tbsp blackberry jam mixed with 1/2 tsp blackberry glaze.
