Ever end up with extra BBQ brisket or pot roast? Instead of eating the exact same leftovers, add it to your grilled cheese to make a salty, creamy brisket grilled cheese sandwich. It just takes 10 minutes and a few ingredients you should have on hand.
2slicesbreadeither fresh or lightly toasted if previously frozen
1tablespoonShredded cheddar cheese
Heat up a small frying pan over medium heat. Spread ½ of the butter on one side of the bread, do the same to 2nd slice of bread. Place one slice of bread, butter side down on hot frying pan.
Place one slice of American cheese on bread, then add ½ cup of brisket, top with other 1 T shredded cheddar cheese, then add slice of American cheese on part of bread without American cheese. Top with 2nd slice of bread, butter side up. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bread is desired brownness.
Flip sandwich with spatula, cook anther 2-3 minutes. Add a lid if cheese isn't melting fast enough, turn down heat to medium-low. Check doneness of bottom bread slice. Remove once bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Cut in half and serve as is, or with a green salad or tomato soup.
Use your favorite kind of bread, if using frozen bread, toast until thawed before making grilled cheese.
Don't have brisket? Swap for pulled pork, leftover pot roast, or roast beef lunch meat.
Use whatever cheese you have. Use at least 2 kinds for flavor. Mozzarella + cheddar, cheddar + parmesan, pepper jack + cheddar, etc are all great combos.
