Smoked Turkey Brie and Apple Panini

Nothing is better than lunch with friends...especially when they make you this yummy sandwich from My Kitchen Cafe :-)! I brought over my own rice bread so I could have a gluten-free version and the crispy bread with the gooey cheese, yummy turkey, sweet apples and carmelized onions was absolutely heavenly. I can hardly even blog about it now...I just want MORE!!!

Artisan, sourdough or french bread, cut into desired slices
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 oil over medium heat. When hot, add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are browned and beginning to caramelize, 10-12 minutes. Set aside.
Place a single layer of brie on one slice of the bread. Top with sliced turkey, apples, caramelized onions and finally with another layer of brie. Place the other slice of bread on top of the sandwich.
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.

Well, there's brie on the sandwich!! That's why it's so stinking good. I will eat anything with brie on it!
