Brie & Apple Panini


I love my panini maker. Anything that can turn a ho-hum sandwich into an impressive meal has a golden spot on my kitchen counter.

The melted cheese, buttered bread and crispy edges created by the panini press make for a delicious treat.

I slathered both sides of my whole grain bread with tzatziki sauce and mango chutney and placed thick slices of brie cheese and thin slices of a tart granny smith apple in the centre.

I was in panini heaven.

It's a good place to be.

Note: If you don't have a panini maker you can create the same effect with a grill pan, press, skillet, etc. Spread a very thin layer of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place the butter side down on the pan and cook for a couple of minutes until golden brown, flip over and when the cheese begins to melt take it off the pan and enjoy.

  10. Mary, I'd be afraid to get a panini maker - I'd probably be making sandwiches with tons of cheese everyday! Brie and apple is such a great combination. Mmmm ...

  13. Brie + fruit is my all time favorite combo. I've only attempted a panini with it once, and the results weren't what I'd hoped for. I'm more than willing to try again though, as these look absolutely amazing. I just wish my dear Trader Joe's was still within walking distance, their $3 squishy brie cannot be beat.

  14. Any brie I buy rarely sees a slice of bread because we polish it off with some sliced fruit in record time. Next time, I should save some for this recipe. Sounds so good! Thanks for sharing :)

  15. I thought my favorite sandwich was chicken, brie, caramelized onions and cashews but maybe, just maybe yours sounds better. :)

    Nothing better than a great sandwich when you're hungry!

  20. I officially want to try every food item on your blog! It all looks so delicious! I had an apple and brie sandwich for the first time in NY not too long ago and I can't stop thinking about it. I need to recreate this easy meal just like you did here! I love the mango chutney touch :)

  22. What I love about this are the thick slices of apple - I can almost taste the brie oozing between them. Hmm, it's breakfast time here - does this count as breakfast food?

  23. Confession: I own a George Foreman and have never used it. But maybe I can recreate these on the GF?
