Mushroom grilled cheese for lunch, anyone? With perfectly cooked mushrooms, creamy Brie cheese and buttery bread, what’s not to love about this cheesy sandwich? This mushroom Brie grilled cheese sandwich is incredibly comforting, super tasty and definitely for those mushroom lovers out there!
It’s ultra savoury, cheesy, buttery and seriously delicious.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are a staple in our home. I’m pretty much obsessed with cheese (I love it). Plus, we always have mushrooms on hand because they pack tons of flavour.
This mushroom grilled cheese is simple enough when you want to treat yourself to an indulgent lunch, yet fancy enough for a nice dinner with a side.
And if you really want to amp up the mushroom goodness, serve with a side of mushroom soup (one of my absolute faves right there).

What Can I Use Instead of Brie?
If you really want to make this sandwich (or a version thereof), but don’t have Brie on hand, try Camembert instead.
Do I Have to Remove the Rind?
Nope! The rind on Brie is edible, though some people prefer to remove.
If you’re not sure, give it a little taste before adding to your sandwich and then decide whether you want to leave on or omit.
What to Serve with Grilled Cheese
Enjoy this mushroom Brie grilled cheese sandwich as is or enjoy with any of these sides for more of a substantial meal:
- As mentioned above, a bowl of soup is classic with a grilled cheese sandwich (a personal favourite)
- Homemade fries
- Potato chips
- Veggie sticks
More Recipe Tips & Variations
Add another veggie element to this Brie sandwich with some cooked spinach. Give it a little squeeze dry of excess moisture before adding to your sandwich.
Baby bella (cremini) mushrooms were used, but white button are another option.
Instead of honey, give your bread a little smear of your favourite jam. Blueberry or apricot jam works lovely here!
