Toasted Apple-Pecan Brie Sandwiches

Recipe by  

"I came up with this recipe one night for dinner and my husband and family loved it and it has become a regular for us. The combination of spiced apples and brie cheese is amazing. Great served with a spring lettuce salad. You can also make this as an appetizer by using a baguette loaf instead of sourdough slices."

Directions

  1. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the apples; cook and stir until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and pecans and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. Cut the slices of bread in half if they are very large and toast lightly. Spread the remaining butter on to one side of each piece of bread. Place two slices of brie cheese onto the unbuttered side of each piece of bread. Top with a generous scoop of the apple mixture. Place the open face sandwiches onto a baking sheet.
  4. Broil until the cheese has melted, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.

WOW, this was delicious. Per a suggestion on the recipe exchange, I made this into a french toast recipe by making standard french toast and topping it with the pecan, cheese, and pear mixture. I was suprised how wonderful the flavors went together. Thanks so much, will make this often.

If you use sweeter apples, you can cut the sugar down to about a tablespoon, added once the apples are cooked, and adjust cinnamon to taste. While good, this creation has so many calories from sugar and butter and cheese that it's definitely a once in a while treat rather than something to serve everyday.

Very yummy! It was a bit hard to taste the brie under the apples and cinnamon (which I didn't really measure, just sprinkled, so maybe I'll use a bit less next time). You could use any type of cheese with this - a sharp cheddar would go nicely and would have a strong enough flavor to taste. Instead of sourdough bread, I used a homemade sweet bread. My husband loved the sandwiches (although wants it for weekend brunches instead of dinner) and my wee ones inhaled the apples. I'll definitely be making this again!

Delish! The combination of flavors is great and I like the sourdough bread (it's a tougher bread and it doesn't get soggy after the warm apples are placed on top). I found broiling it melted the brie nicely. A keeper! Thanks.

This is a great recipe. I use ciabatta rolls for the bread. I think I would make this every week if I had my way, but for the family I control myself. I did get ahead of myself the first time and thought the apples didn't have enough moisture, so I added some apple juice. Big mistake, it made them very runny and not easy to eat, so now I am more patient and the apple turn out perfect. Very happy I found this recipe.

This recipe is INCREDIBLY easy and nobody who eats it can tell! It takes all of 15-20 minutes to make, including peeling the apples. This is the type of dish you get for $15 at a nice restaurant. Absolutely loved it

Very yummy! I added some sliced grilled chicken breast to make it more of a meal. After I lightly toasted the sourdough bread, I added 3 slices of brie, then the chicken then the cinnamon apples/pecans and popped it in the oven for a few minutes. Kids and hubby all loved it.

Really tasty! I used a baguette and cut out the extra butter used for buttering the bottom of the bread. Messy to eat, but totally worth it.
