  • 4 slices sourdough bread -or your fave bread
  • 2 tbsp mayo
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 tbsp blueberry jam
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 oz ham -thinly sliced
  • 80 g brie -cut into thin slices
  • 1/2 apple -thinly sliced


  • Spread mayo on one side of each slice of bread.  Distribute jam over top of only 2 of those slices.  Sprinkle with a little black pepper.
  • Top jam with cheese. Next, add apple slices and ham.
  • Butter outside of all 4 bread slices.
  • In a griddle pan or non stick pan on medium heat add sandwiches.  Cook about 3-4 minutes per side, carefully flipping and cooking 3-4 minutes more until cheese is melted.  Carefully remove from pan, cut in half (if desired) and enjoy!


  • Don't use just any old bread....use something flavourful and fresh.  For this sandwich, I used sourdough.
  • Speaking of bread, the size of the slices you choose will affect how much mayo and butter you use. I had some decent-sized slices of bread and what I used for this recipe was just right.
  • I used a variation on my mixed berry chia seed jam and made blueberry chia seed jam for this sandwich, but you could use whatever type of jam rocks your boat.
  • Thinly sliced or shaved ham works lovely in this recipe.  Your deli should be able to slice it up for you.
  • Don't care for brie cheese? Camembert works lovely too!
