Time: 25 minutes. Apple butter used as a spread makes these grilled turkey sandwiches special, and apple slices add a little crispness.
4 slices rye bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons apple butter
1/2 pound thinly sliced roasted turkey
4 ounces brie cheese, thinly sliced
1 cup baby arugula
1 Gala apple, sliced
How to Make It
Spread 1 side of each bread slice with 1/2 tbsp. butter. Spread the other side of 2 bread slices with 1/2 tbsp. apple butter each; top each with half the turkey, brie, and arugula, then a few apple slices. Spread the bare sides of remaining 2 slices of bread with remaining apple butter, then place on sandwiches, buttered side up.
Put 1 sandwich in a medium frying pan and cook, covered, over medium heat until golden brown on bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn sandwich over and continue to cook until cheese is slightly melted and second side is golden brown, 3 to 4 more minutes. Repeat with remaining sandwich. Serve sandwiches with remaining apple slices.
The combination of poultry, apples, and cheese in a sandwich is nothing new - but always delicious. I skip the apple butter and use spinach instead of arugula and even so, this sandwich is great. I like Granny Smith apples with brie cheese and either shredded chicken or turkey on whole wheat sourdough or rye.
