1 tsp. olive oil
2 - large granny smith apples (quartered, cored and sliced)
1/2 large sweet onion (sliced)
1 sprig rosemary
12 oz. beer (any beer will work, I used a pumpkin spice ale - you can also substitute with broth)
6 oz. brie cheese
8 sliced 100% Whole Wheat Bread
Place oil in a large skillet set to medium-high heat. Saute' onions and apples for approximately 5 minutes. Add beer and rosemary spring; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until onions and apples have cooked down and there is no liquid left, approximately 35-40 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally.
|When it first starts to boil.....|
|....after about 35 - 40 minutes of simmering.|
When the apples and onions have finished cooking; remove rosemary sprig and set aside. Top four slices of bread each with 1 & 1/2 ounces of brie. Then top with 1/4 cup of the apple mixture and then the remaining slices of bread. When your panini press preheated, lightly spray with olive oil and grill your sandwiches until the cheese starts to melt. Approximately 3-4 minutes.
|One of my favorite breads for a panini is the Food For Life - Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain bread. Locally you can find it at Dierbergs in the organic refrigerated section. There are several different types, but I really like the Sesame.|
|Before they turn into sweet melty goodness. :)|
|I think they are done!!!!|
