Brisket and Brie Melt

April is a big month around here, it’s National Grilled Cheese Month and it’s also the start of the basketball playoffs. Couple that with a house full of sport-watching boys, food blogging parents and you’ll understand why I’ll be cranking out game day food for the next 30 days (and pretty much until the championship game). To start things off, I’m making this Brisket and Brie Melt.

This grilled cheese sandwich—I’m obsessed! It has all my favorite things: it’s sweet and salty, multi-textured and it involves one of my favorite breads: eureka! Organic Bread. I used the Saaa-Wheat variety for this recipe since it has a slight sweetness. But along with that, I love how eureka! Organic Bread is: non-GMO verified, Certified USDA Organic and has no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors. I’m totally subscribed to eureka!’s “Don’t be Bland” ethos. Seriously, better-for-you food doesn’t have to be boring. Yay to that because no one wants to sacrifice taste to eat better.

Especially my boys, boys of food bloggers, boys who have cultivated a taste for a very wide range of food. Boys who have learned to critique, pick apart and pull apart a dish as adeptly as a Chopped judge (well, minus the toddler, who prefers red-face screaming and crying over words). This recipe was met with very little feedback, the only one with any real consequence came from my 10-year-old asking, “Where are the chips?”.

See, when its good, I get nothing. I’m okay with that—empty plates tell me all I need to know. Whoo-hoo to this game day grub that makes the cut for Saturday’s first basketball playoff game.
