BLISTERED BLUEBERRY GRILLED CHEESE WITH MASCARPONE AND BRIEBy The Spruce Eats
If you’ve never heard of blistered blueberries, you’re in for a treat. The berries are cooked over high heat with a spoonful of brown sugar until they explode in juicy deliciousness. Pile your blistered berries onto a soft bagel spread with brie and mascarpone. Add fresh basil and toast until the cheese goes perfectly melty and gooey.
3 Basil, fresh leaves
1 1/2 tbsp Blistered blueberries (brown sugar and blueberries)
1 1/2 tbsp Mascarpone
1 small wedge of brie
2 Pats of salted butter
Cut the bagel in half and roast it on the plate. Finely cut the pastrami; overlay the slices and roast them on both sides. Compose the bagel starting with ranch sauce, add the pastrami, overlay a layer of caramelized onions (red or white, as you please), and as a final touch, fresh sprouts. If the season allows it, you can insert a few slices of grilled zucchini instead of caramelized onions, like in the picture.
