This is an appetizer I made for Thanksgiving. It is courtesy of my friend, Claudia.

Apple & Brie Toast

1 French loaf, sliced
Brie cheese, sliced (or cheese of your choice)
Apples, sliced thinly
½ cup pecans, chopped
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup butter

Toast slices of bread on cookie sheet under oven broiler. Place slices of cheese on bread. Cover cheese with slices of apple. Mix pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Put 1 tsp of mixture on each apple. Heat in oven until butter and cheese melts.

Now, when Claudia made it, it had some kind of garlic butter on the toast. I know that it sounds weird, apples, cheese, brown sugar, and garlic, but it was awesome! That part wasn't listed in the recipe, but I think I would do it like this: spread a little butter on the bread before toasting it. Then, when the toast comes out, rub a garlic clove on it to impart the garlic flavor. Then proceed as directed. I'll have to ask her if that's how she did it.

But even without that, these were a hit at Thanksgiving. Sorry I didn't get a picture. I guess I'll have to make it again sometime soon! (Darn! :)
