Brie has been made in Canada since the French colonial era and is one of the most popular cheeses in the country.

Meet Canadian cheese makers who are dedicated to making quality brie.


Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach
4 panini, ciabatta or
small baguette loaves
1/3 cup (80 mL) coarsely chopped walnuts or
pecans
1 unpeeled pear, thinly sliced
12 1/2 oz (375 g) Canadian Brie, sliced

Preparation

Preheat barbecue to medium-high.

Place spinach in a microwave-safe dish with 2 tbsp (30 mL) water. Cover and cook 2 minutes on high. Drain and set aside.

Open bread and evenly divide ingredients among sandwiches, layering them. Close sandwiches. Quickly grill on barbecue, flattening sandwiches with a frying pan or spatula.

Serve immediately with a tossed salad drizzled with Italian dressing.

Tips

Alternative: This sandwich is just as delicious with raw spinach.

The sandwiches can be prepared ahead of time without grilling. The pears, however, should only be added just prior to serving to ensure they do not turn black.

For a change of taste, try with Canadian Swiss, Camembert or Cheddar, etc.
