Turkey Apple Brie Sandwich with Maple Mustard Aioli
One of the most flavorful sandwiches you'll ever have! Make just one or make it for a crowd.
- 4 slices bread
- sliced turkey, good quality
- brie, sliced
- 1 granny smith apple, sliced about 1/4-1/2" thick
- arugula, optional, for topping
Maple Mustard Aioli
- 4 tablespoons whole grain mustard
- 1/3 cup mayo
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 yellow onions, sliced thin
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- water, for steaming
Maple Mustard Aioli
Start by making the aioli. You can make ahead of time and chill, or make it right before you prepare your sandwich. Simply stir all the ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined. You can add additional maple syrup if you want it sweeter. Store in the fridge or use on your sandwich right away.
Add the olive oil to a medium-sized nonstick skillet, over medium heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the sliced onions. Use a spatula to stir for a minute and coat them lightly in the oil.
Then slowly add enough water to cover the bottom the pan, up about a 1/4" – add the cover and let the onions steam for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, check again and stir. Let the water cook down. Once it has evaporated, add more water, cover and cook again for 5 minutes. You will repeat this process until the onions have caramelized and reduced down. They should reduce by over half. They will turn a darker brown color and become very soft and sweet. Keep sweating them with the water and cooking down until they are sweet enough to your liking.
Set aside until ready to assemble your sandwiches. The caramelized onions store well in the fridge for a couple days.
On one slice of Rustik Oven™Artisan White Bread, spread a layer of caramelized onions.
Then layer with turkey, then brie, then apple, and add the Maple Mustard Aioli to the top slice of bread, to finish off the sandwich.
This sandwich also tastes great with arugula on it, if you'd like some extra greens.
