My Favorite Recipes for Fall…
This recipe was inspired by a panini I saw on the menu of an L.A. bakery…
It was made with Brie & Pears, and while they divulged very little about the rest of the sandwich, it looked DELICIOUS!
When I set out to create some Nectarine recipes, this sandwich came to mind…. I’m so glad I tried it… this panini is to die for.
You want to make this. Oh my, do you want to make this!
Ever since I made these I’ve been lying awake at night thinking about the different things I could stuff a panini with and how delicious it’s going to taste.
Is that normal?
I hope your answer is yes.
This sandwich truly does melt in your mouth. The buttery, toasted bread gives you just enough crunch to balance out the creamy brie and nectarine filling inside. THe peppery arugula and the drizzle of balsamic give it that final punch that really knock this panini’s flavor out of the park.
It’s beautiful, decadent, and divine.
How many you make and who you make it for is entirely up to you. But make it soon! This is not something you want to put off.
It is nothing like dusting your ceiling fans or organizing that front closet. This recipe was made to be enjoyed TODAY!
I had to start with the final shot!
A super-yummy lunch (or dinner)…
Okay, so you go to buy ingredients for the Turkey, Apple & Brie burgers with Arugula…

Why not buy some sliced ham and an extra apple and make these sandwiches for lunch the day of, or the day after, you make your burgers? And, BONUS… use the ham for a DELICIOUS panini dinner another night of the same week! (I will be posting this recipe soon!) I love being able to use the same ingredients for several different recipes if possible, so I tried to pick some recipes with the same ingredients for your sake and mine! 🙂
Let’s dive into making these sandwiches!
Apple & Brie is a classic pairing so I had to find a recipe that meshed the two together.
I also wanted a Bobby Flay recipe… I love his recipes but they usually require a lot of ingredients, so I can’t justify buying all of them for one dinner. I hate having random ingredients sitting in my pantry or spoiling in my fridge that I use for one recipe and then never use again. I spring for this kind of recipe from time to time, but this is not that time… Brie is enough of a “spring” compared to other cheeses anyhow!
Before you start… you can click here for a quick “how-to” on burgers in general. Not all of this applies as this is a turkey burger and not a beef burger but it’s still helpful… especially if you’re new to grilling like me.
This recipe is delicious and simple! (My favorite combination!)
