Sandwiches for lunch?
Well there’s more to it than the classic bologna or cheese sandwiches, right.
A couple of years ago before I started food blogging full time, I had an office job as an accountant. And I would bring my sandwiches for lunch practically every day. My challenge was to come up with creative lunch ideas or spreads.
Like a creamy egg salad, or a lush tuna salad with tomatoes.
My colleagues would always comment on my lunch spreads, saying how delicious it looked. Anyway, all this to tell you that sandwiches don’t have to be boring!
Another way to enjoy sandwiches for lunch is to serve it with a delicious bowl of homemade soup. Like my pumpkin and carrot soup with grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for instance!
Easy Brie Sandwich with Mortadella
So here we are today, looking for a creative lunch.
I made a simple and classic waldorf salad yesterday.
So I have a couple of leftover white grapes and a few stalks of fresh celery in my fridge.And I really think that those are a great match for a grilled brie sandwich! I also sneaked in a slice of heavenly Italian mortadella
Just look at that melted cheese then… I can assure that you lunch doesn’t have to be boring at all!

- 2 ciabatta bread rolls

2) Top 2 of the grilled breads with the mortadella and the sliced brie. Sprinkle with a little pepper and salt. Grill the sandwiches under the hot grill again until the cheese starts to melt nicely.
3) In the meantime slice the fresh celery and the grapes into bite-size pieces.
4) Once the brie has melted, remove the sandwiches from the grill and garnish both with the fresh celery and grapes. Finish with a last sprinkle of pepper and some fresh parsley. Cover with the remaining grilled bread.
