Brie & Apple Melts

  • 1 Baguette – sliced to 1/2″ thick
  • 3-4 Tablspoons Unsalted Butter
  • 8 oz Brie, rind removed, thinly sliced
  • 2 Green Apples, cored, halved and thinly sliced
  • Sprigs of Arugula
  • Pinch of Black Pepper, freshly cracked

Cooking temperatures & times will vary depending on the oven or grill being used.
Lightly butter one side of the baguette slices.  You can either place them under a preheated 400º broiler or on a grill, either way you are going to let them toast on one side, until just golden brown.  Once toasted, remove them from the heat and top each slice with the apples.  Now you are going to take your brie and place it in the middle on top of the apple slices.  Return to the broiler (for the grill – protect the bottoms) for just enough time that the brie begins to droop a bit.  Once it starts to melt and droop remove from the heat, transfer the whole lot to a plate and top with springs of arugula and black pepper.

***Cook’s Note:  You can also add crisped pancetta or bacon bits to this recipe for a little added extra sumpthin’ sumpthin’

    Wonderful recipe idea, especially on hot days. The combination of a tart apple, with the soothing cheese and the herbal notes of arugula. Wow. Thanks.

    Oh, two of my favorites! And seriously making me rethink being vegan, even if only for an hour or two. Just gorgeous!

  4. “simplicity” is my favorite word. And I LOVE this green color in the photos (my favorite color as my smart kid has noticed (I wasn’t aware of it)).
