Today’s lunch was conjured in the Whole Foods aisles this morning.
I found out some horrifying news today – I have to have my wisdom teeth pulled! (What, am I in middle school? Is chicken pox next?) Horrifying because I have an irrational fear of the dentist. Just put me out and clamp headphones over me.
Naturally I deserved a treat, right? (with that logical justifying I really may be middle school age…) I stopped at the market after my dental appointment, and my first thought was brie. They carry a brie from a local farmer I met at the farmers market, and even saw one of their goats. Local cheese from happy goats.
I have wanted to do a sweet savory something with pineapple and chipotle, and as I was selecting a croissant it all came together:
chipotle, pineapple and brie sandwich
2 slices fresh pineapple (horizontal, like rings)
2 slices brie (lengthwise down wedge)
1 tablespoon chipotle mayo
1 croissant (or bread/wrap/salad of choice)
Preheat oven to 350. Chop pineapple into bite size pieces, slice brie. Slice croissant in half lengthwise, spread both sides with chipotle mayo. Place brie pieces on larger (bottom) side of croissant, top with pineapple slices. Place sandwich open faced on baking sheet, ‘bake’ for 7-8 minutes until warmed through and brie is melted.
Reminds me of the flavors of pizza with pineapple – sweet and savory goodness. This is just what my inner 9 year old needed today. I may need another on Wednesday…
Do you still have your wisdom teeth? You probably had them out when you were a kid, right?
