Last week, I shared a recipe for Oven-Barbecued Beef Brisket that makes one of the best briskets I have ever eaten. When I make a brisket for my family, we always have leftovers and this Brisket Grilled Cheese is one of my favorite ways to use those leftovers.

With gooey melted cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and pieces of tender slow-cooked brisket, this is a delicious, drool-worthy sandwich. It’s a stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal.

I love it because you don’t need much brisket, so it’s a good meal to make when you just have a small amount of leftovers. A little brisket goes a long way in these sandwiches.

  1. Christin, this looks so delicious! Brisket is one of our favorite cuts of meat. I love how it just gets better the longer it sits in the fridge! This sandwich is definitely going on my “to make” list!

  2. I love doing this with pulled pork. These brisket grilled cheese sandwiches look amazing! Would make sense to make the brisket just for these sandwiches! : )
