1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick) plus 2 more tablespoons
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 pint of fresh strawberries
1 jar good strawberry jam
6 ounces brie
8 slices Challah bread
Butter 4 of the Challah slices on both sides.
Sprinkle one side with the granulated sugar and turn the slices sugared sides down. Spread each slice with jam.
Make a layer of sliced strawberries and cover with slices of brie.
Butter the remaining 4 slices of Challah on both sides and sprinkle one side with sugar.
Lay the slices on top of the cheese, sugared sides facing up, to make 4 sandwiches. Press down gently.
Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium low heat. Put 2 of the sandwiches in the pan and cook 2-3 minutes until the sugar melts and the bread turns golden and the cheese begins to melt. Turn and cook until the second side is golden and the cheese is bubbly. Take the sandwiches out of the pan and repeat to cook the rest.
Dust with confectioners sugar, decorate with fresh sliced strawberries and serve warm!
