Swap out any ol' bread for a baguette when making a sandwich and suddenly it's transformed. How so, you ask? Well, a baguette makes it a touch French, which means it's a touch fancy (read: you can grab a bottle of rosé and head out for an impromptu picnic lunch).
This sandwich involves crisp, juicy green apple slices, buttery brie cheese, and a swipe of tangy Dijon. Tuck them into a baguette and in a matter of seconds you have a lunch that's sure to brighten your afternoon — even if you aren't able to escape your desk for that picnic.
A Simple Sandwich That Tastes Special
This recipe is so simple that it hardly even needs a recipe. All the components join forces to make for one stellar sandwich that you'll be tempted to make all week long. Dijon mustard has just enough tang to cut through the rich, creamy brie, while juicy slices of green apple add plenty of crunch to keep each bite interesting. Since it's built on a sturdy baguette, it's a sandwich that can be assembled quickly in the morning and will hold up for a few hours until lunchtime comes around (although it comes together so fast that it can also be made as soon as your stomach starts growling at noon).
Apple, Brie, and Dijon Baguette Sandwich
French baguette (about 6 inches), split in half lengthwise
brie cheese, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
medium Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced (5 to 6 slices)
Spread the mustard on the cut sides of the baguette. Place the brie slices on the bottom half of the baguette, top with the apple slices, and close the sandwich with the top half of the baguette.
