I’m not much of a sandwich person, but when it is on a baguette I apparently change my mind. I have been thinking about this sandwich every day since we made it.
Do you see those patient baby hands up there? We had to share our sandwiches with two hungry toddlers, and somehow managed to take these pictures to the slightly stressful chant of "More cheese please! Are those apple slices?! I would like some MORE HONEY!" etc, etc.
The honey we used was a little special, which was fun. We tried out this raw Colorado clover honey. It came in a jar with a chic label and was much more solid than our usual honey, but had a really nice texture and floral taste.
This recipe makes about 3 to 4 sandwiches depending on the size of your baguette.
Apple Brie Baguette
Slice the baguette lengthwise. Spread the honey thinly on the bread, then layer on slices of brie. We recommend sprinkling with coarse salt on top of the brie, by the way, so it sticks and doesn’t fall off the sandwich. Finish by layering the apples slices, the arugula. Slice into sandwiches and you’re done.
- One baguette
