Bread Lust

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

So, like a crazy person, I gave up bread for lent - because I am apparently a glutton for some Catholic punishment. This year Ash Wednesday (the start of lent) fell on 2/13/13 - a week ago. So guess what I've been dreaming of for the past week? BREAD!

Allora, such is life. In 33 more days I can fix myself one of these tasty babies, eye on the prize people...

Roasted Strawberry, Brie, and Chocolate Grilled Cheese 

makes 2 sandwiches
  • 6 strawberries, quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 thick-cut slices of multigrain bread
  • 2-3 ounces of brie cheese, sliced
  • 1-2 ounces high-quality chocolate

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss strawberries with oil and salt, then spread on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium-low heat. Butter the sides of two slices of bread, place them on the pan buttered-side down, then layer on a few slices of cheese, chocolate and berries. Top with a few more slices of cheese, then butter one side of the other slices of bread, and place on top (butter side up). Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has started to melt, then gently flip the sandwich and cook on the other side until golden. Serve and enjoy!
Soon ...
