"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." — Jharmon40

packed brown sugar
Brie cheese, cut into long, even slices
ground cinnamon, for dusting
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
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.
Good, but I think I'd nix the sugar if I made these again. I like the combo of the brie with the apples but the sugar is too much for me. My brie melted, but it was still good. I think I'll have the apples separately,maybe over pancakes. Thanks for the recipe!
