The downside, of course, is having to reminisce about last weekend's beautiful weather. It felt like spring in the middle of January! Well, now that we're experiencing more common temperatures for this time of year, as well as the precipitation happening in certain parts of our region, this weekend is shaping up to be pretty low-key.

On a weekend like this, nothing's better than curling up on the couch with some coffee or tea and some comfort food. What defines comfort food better than a grilled cheese? Grilled cheese a comfort food staple!

This grilled cheese, however, is NOT your average run-of-the-mill grilled cheese. Finecooking.com took your normal grilled cheese up a notch by adding bacon, brie, and blackberry preserves to give you a grilled cheese almost as special as you are.

To make the perfect gourmet grilled cheese, finecooking.com says you'll need:

  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half

  • 4 slices crusty bread, about 1/2 inch thick

  • 2 Tbs. blackberry preserves

  • 4 oz. brie, rind removed and sliced

The result is an absolutely beautiful twist on your traditional grilled cheese. Is your mouth watering yet?
