Recipe By J’Something

1 tub mascarpone cheese (at room temperature)
1/3 cup icing sugar
4 slices brioche (or coconut) bread
mixed berries (I use blueberries, raspberries and strawberries)
butter, for frying

Nothing beats a grilled cheese, but these are taken up a notch and given a fancy twist.

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the mascarpone cheese and icing sugar well.
  2. Spread the mixture on 2 slices of bread.
  3. Place the berries on top and close the sandwiches.
  4. Place the closed sandwiches in a generously buttered pan and grill until both sides are golden-brown.
