Jerry’s Baguettes w/ Butter & Brie
- Long Baguette, cut into 4 equal pieces, or 2 short baguettes
- Brie Cheese
- 1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) Butter, room temperature (though you might need more because butter is amazing)
- 3 Tbsp. Apricot Jam (optional)
In a small bowl, stir together the butter & optional apricot jam until smooth & creamy. Slice the Brie into ~1/4″ thick pieces. Cut the baguettes in half horizontally. Slather butter onto the open baguette halves & then place Brie slices in a single layer on one slice of each bread pair–If you plan on baking your baguettes, only place a line of cheese in the center of the bread, so there is space on either side of the cheese (so when it melts & spreads out it won’t get crazy gooey). If you’re not baking your sandwiches, simply close & enjoy! If you are baking them, place the halves, buttered & cheese sides up, on a baking sheet & bake for 5 minutes in a 375ºF oven. If serving for a gathering, slice the completed sandwiches into ~1 – 1 1/2 inch wide pieces.
