Apple Chips

Apple Chips

We were fortunate enough this year to go apple picking at one of our favorite orchards. Not sure if we love apple picking as much as we love their apple pie from the Elegant Farmer. ¬†Regardless, apple picking was something we always loved to do […]

Not too long ago I was fortunate enough to get a gift of a dehydrator. I know, it sounds lame, but it is something that I have wanted for a very long time but never really pulled the trigger on the purchase. I was lucky […]

Avocado and Brie Sandwich

Avocado and Brie Sandwich

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a meat eater. I probably eat way too much meat, and as a matter of fact, I just got done eating some delicious beef jerky from Ray’s Butcher Shoppe. Sometimes though you just need to step away from the meat, and ingest a great salad, or a great sandwich. So this past weekend as we got ready for a busy Saturday, I decided to feed my wife as she was getting ready to head out the door. When I asked her if she wanted lunch, she perked up and said ‘Sure!’, and then I let her know what I was going to create. She was skeptical, but I then stated that was what I was going to make and sure could come on board if she wanted to, or she could make something else. I had recently bought a French country style loaf of bread and I knew this would lend to making an awesome sandwich. This is when I came up with the avocado and brie sandwich. It was ridiculously good.

Avocado and Brie Sandwich

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 2 thick slices of French Style Country Bread
  • 1 whole avocado, mashed
  • 1/2 cup brie cheese, rind removed
  • 1 leaf romaine lettuce, torn
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp herbed mayonnaise, optional
  • 1/2 tbsp canola oil
  • salt to taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly butter the French bread and place onto a baking sheet in the oven. You will want to lightly toast the bread, not only for texture, but it also will help hold up to the softness of the mashed avocado and brie.

While the bread toasts, add the brie to a small baking dish and let it cook, just until melted. I loved that part.

How to make an avocado and brie sandwichTo a small skillet, add the canola oil and sliced onions. Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes, just until the soften and turn color.

When the toast is ready, rub both slices with the garlic clove. Place the herbed mayonnaise on top, then smear the avocado, top with the awesomely melted brie cheese, cooked onions, and then the lettuce.

I sliced this one in half, because you know why? Because my wife, as she saw how great everything looked, accepted my lunch invitation, and you also know what? She, as I, fell in love with it.

As much as I wanted to add a couple of slices of bacon to this one, I withheld, and it was a great decision to do so. Hope you enjoy!
