Smoked Turkey Brie and Apple Panini

My family and I love panini's and this one is a winner. I never knew onions were so easy to carmelize! I'll admit I was a little hesitant to put apples on a sandwich but they were oh so good. I'll be making these again and again.

Adapted: Camille
Calories: around 350 per sandwich

Artisan, sourdough or french bread, cut into desired slices (I used Ciabatta)
Shaved or sliced smoked turkey
4 ounces Brie cheese, wax removed and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 apple, cored and cut into thin slices (I used a Gala apple)
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced into half moons

In a small saucepan, melt 1 teaspoon of oil or butter over medium heat. When hot, add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are browned and beginning to caramelize, 8-10 minutes. Set aside.
Place a single layer of cheese on one slice of the bread. Top with sliced turkey, apples, caramelized onions and finally with another layer of cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top of the sandwich. Spread some butter on the top and bottom of the bread for extra crispiness!
Preheat a skillet or indoor grill pan to medium heat. Place sandwich in the pan and top with a heavy skillet or panini press. Grill 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and heated through.


  1. Oh, now this sounds delicious! But you're a tease for adding such a yummy looking salad without a recipe... another post?

  2. Oh, it was just Romaine lettuce, tomato, avocado, croutons and buttermilk homemade ranch dressing.

  3. That sounds so amazingly good. I will be trying this when I get around to buying some brie. Mouthwatering!

  4. Made this for dinner and it was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!! THanks for sharing! Loved the carmelized red onions. I have carmelized yellow cooking onions but never red. LOVED IT

  5. Oh, I'm so glad you liked it. Once you have the ingredients - it's SO easy to put together.

  6. Ok so now you need to recommend a good panini press... ?
