Who says that a grilled cheese sandwich has to be just a grilled cheese sandwich? Don’t get me wrong, nothing brings the comforts of childhood much more than a grilled cheese sandwich but now that I’m an adult, I like to take those old childhood favorites a step further. I had the chance to try new-to-me Roman Meal bread and tested it out by making one of my favorite sandwiches: a brie and golden apple panini.

It sounds fancy, doesn’t it? In reality it couldn’t be more simple. Gather your ingredients:

  • Two slices of Roman Meal bread
  • a wedge of brie cheese
  • a golden delicious apple
  • butter
  • a panini press, griddle, or pan

To create the sandwich you are going to put it together just as you would any other grilled cheese because, really, that’s all this is. A more grown up version of the classic childhood favorite.

  • slice the brie and arrange the slices evenly on one piece of bread
  • slice the apple very thin and arrange it evenly on top of the brie
  • put the sandwich together and butter both sides
  • grill on a hot pan until both sides are golden brown and the cheese is melted

Why choose Roman Meal bread?

Roman Meal has been family owned and operated since 1912 and is baked fresh locally. They partner with more than 90 regional bakeries across the United States which means that Roman Meal is never frozen or shipped over long distances. This is important to me because it lessens the environmental impact of fuel emissions and the bread is more fresh than brands that ship their product over long distances. 

Not only is Roman Meal fresh, but it is also made with a natural whole grain blend of whole wheat, whole rye, wheat bran, wheat germ, and flax meal with hints of honey and molasses. My kids loved this bread for their turkey and peanut butter and honey sandwiches and asked us to buy it again. I definitely will because it is a good source of Vitamin D and made without high fructose corn syrup so I can feel good about giving it to them.
