This snowy winter weather has been getting me down lately. It’s just so cold.
Now that March is here, I’m eagerly awaiting any and all signs of spring. I’ve been looking forward to long, leisurely walks through my favorite neighborhoods and relaxing picnics in Central Park. Both of these activities are probably a long way off, but that hasn’t stopped me from dreaming!
In the meantime, I’ve been satisfying my picnic daydreams with some fresh and easy recipes. This Brie and Apple Sandwich is the perfect treat, whether you are eating inside or out!
This sandwich is exactly the type of food I like to pack for a picnic on a warm spring day. It’s exceedingly easy to make, yet it tastes super fresh and even a little decadent, thanks to the brie.
Apples and brie are a match made in heaven, especially when paired with crusty bread and a little Dijon mustard. Feeling creative? Substitute the pears for the apples, another soft, washed rind cheese for the brie, or your favorite mustard for the Dijon.
Pair this Brie and Apple Sandwich with a glass of wine (try chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, or rosé for more of that picnic spirit), and you will have an easy lunch or dinner in minutes!
- 1 (12-oz.) loaf crusty bread
- 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 1/2 lb. brie cheese, sliced
- 1 1/2 medium apples, thinly sliced
- Slice bread in half lengthwise.
- Spread top half of the bread with the Dijon mustard.
- Cover bottom half of bread with brie.
- Top brie with apple slices.
- Place top half of bread over apples and cut into 4 sandwiches. Enjoy!
I served this Brie and Apple Sandwich with a light and zesty Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad, and it was the delicious pairing.
