Blueberries + brie is one of the greatest food combos. Take that combo up a notch with frozen wild blueberries. They’re jam packed with nutrients and antioxidants, and even have a more intense blueberry flavor than regular blueberries… which means that you don’t need to use as many wild frozen blueberries as the traditional ones.
Here are a few other health facts about these frozen Wild Blueberries:
- They’ve got a more intense blueberry flavor (yaaassss!)
- They’ve got about 2x the antioxidants as regular ‘ole blueberries!
- They’ve got a bit less sugar than regular blueberries naturally do. Compound that on not needing as many, and you’ve got quite the combo!
Seriously, they’ll change your life. Check out WildBlueberries for more info.
The good thing about this sauce is that I can’t stop thinking of delicious eats to add this to.
- Whole grain crackers + brie
- Grilled chicken
- Pot Roast
- Your finger.
- you name it, this goes on it!

Grilled Turkey and Brie Sandwich with Wild Blueberry Mustard
- cutting board
- small mixing bowl
- Measuring Spoons
- Small Saucepan
- 1 tablespoon frozen Wild Blueberries thawed
- 1 teaspoon whole grain dijon mustard
- 1/4 tsp chia seeds
- 2 slices brie sliced thin
- 3 oz turkey breast sliced
- 2 slices your favorite bread
- butter or cooking spray to cook sandwich in
- 1 handful arugula
- Make blueberry mustard by combining 1 tbsp thawed wild blueberries, 1 tsp dijon mustard, and 1/4 tsp chia seeds. Set aside to thicken.
- Make sandwiches by placing 2 slices brie, 2 oz turkey on top of one slice of bread, place second slice of bread on top. Add butter or cooking spray to a small saucepan, and heat over medium heat. Grill sandwich in small saucepan until cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
- Remove sandwich from saucepan and place on serving plate. Remove top slice of bread, and set on the side. Spoon wild blueberry mustard on top of turkey and cheese, then add a handful of arugula to sandwich. Replace top slice of bread. Eat immediately. Pair with chips &/or salad.
- Use regular frozen blueberries if you can't find wild blueberries, but know that they won't be as flavorful or tart as the wild variety.
- Remove blueberries from freezer 30 minutes before making sandwiches to thaw, or thaw in microwave for 30 seconds.
- Place lid on pan to melt cheese more quickly and prevent bread from burning. You can also use the lid to press down the sandwich if it's too tall.
