Hearty Grilled Brie with Pear and Arugula Sandwich

30 Nov

It’s no secret I love grilled cheese sandwiches. Love them! Seriously, is there better comfort food on the entire planet? Don’t think so.

There’s no reason a grilled cheese sandwich can’t be a hearty and good-for-you meal. Like life, it all boils down to choices: use whole grain bread, heart-healthy oil, high quality cheese, and add some fruit/veggies.

Pear, Brie, and Arugula Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2 slices Dave’s Killer

2 tsp olive oil (for grilling)

2 oz Brie

1/2 cup arugala

1/2 d’anjou pear (or apple, if you prefer)

Smear of Dijon or honey (or honey mustard!)

Brush bread lightly with oil. Load up fixin’s. Grill over medium heat until the brie is melted and the bread is gold brown (about 3 minutes on each side).
