Grilled Brie and Apple Sandwich with Spicy Apple Chutney

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

8 (1/4-inch thick) diagonally cut French bread slices
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
8 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, room temperature (1 cup)
2 large apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
4 tablespoons Spicy Apple Chutney (see sidebar)

Butter one side of each bread slice. Place the bread, buttered side down, onto a cutting board.

Spread (or crumble) the brie cheese over the unbuttered side of 4 of the bread slices.

Spread 1 tablespoon of chutney on top of the brie. Distribute the apple slices over top of the brie.

Heat a grill or skillet over medium high heat. Place the brie, chutney and apple topped bread slices, buttered side down into the skillet. Top with the remaining bread, buttered side up.

Cover the sandwiches with a lid and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove the lid and check the bottom slice of bread to make sure it has turned golden brown. Use a spatula to turn the sandwiches. Press down on the top of each one. Cook uncovered for 1 to 2 minutes more. Turn the sandwiches one more time and cook for 1 more minute. Cut each sandwich in half and serve.
