Toasted brie, dark chocolate, and strawberry sandwich

toasted, grilled, brie, cheese, sandwich, multigrain, whole, grain, healthy, strawberry, fruit, chocolate, dark, milk, butter, creamy, messy, lunch, dinnerIt's well known that I suck at lunch. And breakfast, actually. And I'm not really that great at dinner, either. Why the hell do I have a food blog?

But on occasion I'll see a recipe on Pinterest that I just HAVE to shove in my facehole. One of those most recent ones was this orgasmic take on a grilled cheese sandwich. It's kind of messy, and the prep is slightly more labor intensive than a cup of easy mac or a bowl of cereal, my normal lunch options. But it's so good! Who could argue with this winning combo?

I scrubbed that thing for an hour because I was sick of setting off the fire alarm every time we turned it on. Meanwhile, slice up your cheese (eating the parts that get stuck to the knife, of course), and chop up the chocolate.toasted, grilled, brie, cheese, sandwich, multigrain, whole, grain, healthy, strawberry, fruit, chocolate, dark, milk, butter, creamy, messy, lunch, dinner

Heat a large skillet or grilled over medium-low heat, have some delicious cider, and slice up some thick slices of multigrain bread.

Ignore the color of the brie, I had my flash on and overexposed the whites, , it doesn't actually look weirdly grey.
