Eat In. French breakfast brie sandwiches.

I'd like to consider myself a relatively healthy person. I eat raw vegetables, fruits, and nuts. I run at least 5 miles almost every day. But sometimes, you really just need to let loose, and the weekends are the perfect time to make a delicious, but possibly heart-stopping sandwich.

This sandwich requires just a few things: sourdough bread, Trader Joe's mulitgrain sourdough is phenomenal, jam (I think raspberry works best, but orange marmalade works fine, too), and brie. Mmm. Oh, and some butter.

OK. So just slice very thin pieces of brie to outline your sandwich and spread your jam before heating the pan, but also spread some butter on the other side of the bread so it doesn't stick to the pan -- a bit tricky. The next part needs to be quick. Plop in your jam-spread bread, butter side down then place the pieces of brie so they will melt covering all the sandwich.

Then just cook like a regular grilled cheese. The results are amazing. This is an excellent breakfast sandwich and it's good as leftovers, since the oils in the cheese seep into the bread.

The one pictured above has turkey, but I like mine meatless.
