Ingredients

  • 1 apple, cored and sliced into four wedges
  • 4 cinnamon raisin bread
  • 2 Ounces Brie, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons crumbled gorgonzola
  • 2 Tablespoons pecan halves

Directions

Preheat a toaster oven to 375 degrees F (or a regular oven to 400 degrees F).

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and arrange apples on the sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until apples are soft and golden brown with a caramelized crust on the bottom.

Preheat the panini grill to medium-high heat.

For each sandwich: Arrange slices of Brie and gorgonzola to cover a slice of cinnamon raisin bread. Top with roasted apple slices and pecans. Close the sandwich with another slice of bread. Grill for 3-4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
