I picked up some arugula at the farmer’s market this weekend, but I didn’t really have anything planned for it. It sat in the fridge for a few days until I was inspired yesterday to throw together a lunchtime sammie.
I made my panini in a sandwich press, but you could easily do it in a pan. Start by adding some sliced brie onto the bread:
Ok, ready for the press?
Put the sandwiches into a sandwich press or a hot pan. If using a pan, cover another skillet with aluminum foil and place on top of the sandwiches. Add a weight of some sort: cans, a brick, whatever you have around. When one side of the panini is browned, flip and weight down again to brown the other side.
Brie, Apple and Arugula Panini
1 Granny Smith apple
4 slices of crusty bread
Assemble the sandwiches by layering slices of brie onto two slices of bread. Top with thinly sliced Granny Smith apple and arugula and add the other slices of bread.
Place the sandwiches into a sandwich press and cook until browned. If using a pan, place the sandwiches into a hot skillet. Cover another skillet with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup) and weight the panini down with cans or a brick. Flip when the first side is browned to brown the other side.
Enjoy while the cheese is still hot and melty!
