This is not a healthy recipe. It is really good, but it is not healthy. We have cheese. We have butter. We have bread. But it is really lovely and you will enjoy it.
This was inspired by reading all about cheese and cheese fondue in Ann Mah’s Mastering the Art of French Eating. Apparently after reading The Sweet Life in Paris, I’m on a theme with French food and French recipes. Not that this uses the same kind of cheese or is really the same thing at all. But it is good. The crunchiness and sweetness of the apple are a delicious contrast to the soft cheese and salty turkey. If you can, try to find turkey that’s lean and low-sodium if possible. It’s especially good with a side of sliced tomatoes, straight from the garden.
This recipe make one sandwich, or one serving. And no, you will not want to share.
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread, one side each buttered
- 2 thin slices turkey deli meat
- 1/2 an apple, thinly sliced
- 4 thin slices of brie
- Layer the turkey, brie, and apple between the slices of bread, with the buttered side out.
- Heat a frying pan on medium-high heat. Cook the grilled cheese for 3 minutes each side, or until the bread is browned and starting to get crispy.
- Cut in half and enjoy.
