Roast Beef and Brie

As if they were meant for each other, I just don't tire of pairing Roast Beef with soft and Creamy Brie. This sandwich a fresh and clean version of my Whole Foods staple (the Barton) pairs cajun roast, brie, arugula and surprise...peach preserves!
I wouldn't normally have paired the peach preserves (homemade but store would also be perfect) with this combination but low and behold it worked into the mix like a charm. (The peppery arugula does wonders to cut the sweetness!) The original Barton I have now been craving for ages but did not have my fig preserves handy so this did the trick!

Peachy Keen

1 baguette
1/4 lb cajun roast beef (Whole Foods house made)
1/4 lb wedge soft Brie
Peach preserves

Split baguette open lengthwise and spread open without cutting through the other side. Spread entire loaf with peach preserves. Layer the roast, brie and arugula and season with salt and pepper.
Serves 4-5 people

It really is this simple. Experiment with any type of preserves you like...fig is the classic but strawberry could be good too.
