Watercress and Brie Sandwiches
Last night I needed a really easy dinner, because my kitchen looks like this:
I was going to make this in my panini pan, but not so easy without a cooktop. Oh, well the broiler is a good option since my new oven is now installed.
I ordered some watercress from my local CSA, Farmer's Fresh Market, for pickup yesterday and tried to build a sandwich around it. I once had an appetizer recipe I used to make a lot which called for orange marmalade, brie and watercress and so I went with that combination.
watercress (could sub with arugula or microgreens)
Step 1: toast the bread under the broiler for about a minute. Quarter your avocado and, using a fork, mash it and spread onto one slice of each sandwich and top with the turkey (I am not a fan of pre-packed lunch meat, but I was at Trader Joe's and did not have time to run somewhere with a deli). Spread the other slice of each sandwich with orange marmalade and top with a few slices of the brie. I'm also making a regular grilled cheese for Will on this pan, no need to add kraft to your sandwich!
Step 2: Put the baking sheet back under the broiler until the brie starts to melt. Add a nice bunch of the watercress and put the two pieces together. Delicious!
You can also add a layer of cream cheese under the marmalade for an even more delicious sandwich.
