Apple Brie Baguette

Let me tell you what’s on this delicious (but simple!) sandwich:  brie, tangy apple slices, spicy arugula, and honey.  On a fresh baguette. With a little sprinkle of coarse salt. It’s so easy that it barely counts as a recipe, but it is so delicious that we got really excited about it and had to share.

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. 
Apple Brie Sandwich
This recipe makes about 3 to 4 sandwiches depending on the size of your baguette.

Apple Brie Baguette

  • One baguette
  • 6 oz sliced Brie
  • 1/2 thinly sliced tart apple
  • handful of fresh arugula
  • drizzle of honey
  • sprinkle of coarse sea salt
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.

  1. Perfect for the baby arugula in our garden. Trying to go gluten free so I might transform it into a salad for me and sandwich for the husband.
