Ingredients: 

  • 8 slices Nature’s Own Honey Wheat

  • 2 red apples

  • 2 tablespoons raisins

  • 1 tablespoon chopped almonds

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon ground sage

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 16 thin slices Brie

  • 1 pound sliced turkey or leftover turkey

  • 1 cup baby arugula

Directions: 

  • Using an apple corer, core the apple 90% from top to bottom, leaving a small bit of the bottom intact, creating a “bowl” effect.

  • In a small bowl, add the raisins, almonds, brown sugar and cinnamon and mix evenly.

  • In a separate small mixing bowl, add the butter and ground sage. Mix to evenly incorporate.

  • Place the apples onto a non-stick sheet tray. Add the brown sugar and raisin mix into each of the apples then add 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture on top of each apple (reserve the rest for later). Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes.

  • Once the apples are finished, remove from the oven and let cool, then slice into thin slices or rings.

  • Brush the remaining butter onto one side of each piece of Nature’s Own Honey Wheat bread. With butter side down, add two slices of brie to the 4 bottom pieces.

  • Add a few slices of turkey, two apple slices, a few leaves of arugula and two more pieces of brie over the top.

  • Add the top piece of bread with the butter side up and place onto a panini press for 4-5 minutes or until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted. Slice in half and serve hot.
