Summertime cooking can be tricky if you’re looking to avoid using the oven or stove. I find that using a portable indoor grill works really well in these situations. You can still make hot food without heating up the whole kitchen.
This sandwich I made the other day was pretty tasty. The tart apples, sweet onions, and creamy cheese complimented each other very well.
A panini press isn’t necessary to make a grilled sandwich like this one. I simply used my George Foreman Grill to make a perfectly toasted sandwich. If you don’t have a George Foreman Grill, you can find one at pretty much any garage sale or thrift shop!
Not sure how to caramelize onions? Instructions can be found in my French onion soup recipe post.

Make sure to slice the apples quite thin. I simply used a knife and cutting board, but you could certainly use a mandoline slicer to make uniform slices.
For each sandwich:
Brie cheese slices
Granny Smith apple slices
To assemble sandwiches, spread brie cheese on bread, top with apple slices, lay on a few caramelized onion slices, and top with another slice of bread. Butter the exposed sides of the bread. Place on preheated grill and toast for a few minutes, until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. On my George Foreman Grill, this took about four minutes.
