I always enjoy trips to my husband’s family farm. Not only for the fresh air, quiet nights, and cuddly farm animals, but mainly for the good eats. It seems like every time we visit, we feast. This time was no exception. However, this time it was my husband’s father who did the cooking.
He grilled up these apple, apple butter, and brie sandwiches for lunch. I was pleased, for once, that my only job was to photograph- rather than to cook and photograph. (Which can often get tricky!) I was especially pleased with how well these turned out. They were heaven. Hands down the best sandwich I’ve had all year and maybe the best yet. The apple butter was an unexpected addition that made this recipe truly special. It added spice, sweetness, and creaminess that contrasted perfectly with the mild brie and crisp pink lady apples. The simplicity of it made it taste even better. Let me tell you, it was an absolute treat to discover this recipe. I do hope you’ll make it soon.
Ingredients: (makes 6 sandwiches)
2 baguettes sliced lengthwise (multigrain, white, or wheat)
1 pink lady apple (or other sweet apple) cored and sliced paper thin
1 hunk of brie sliced
Directions: Smear a generous amount of apple butter on the bottom side of each baguette and layer with the apple slices.
Next, add a layer of sliced brie.
Broil open faced for 5 to 10 minutes, until the cheese starts to melt. Next, put the sandwiches together and slice into thirds. Then, finish them off on a griddle or in a pan, toasting on each side.
Serve hot and enjoy! These pair well with a steamy cup of soup or some crispy sweet potato chips.
