Bacon. Apple. Brie. Spinach.

I am head over heels in love with this sandwich.

Salty, crunchy bacon. Check!

Crisp, juicy apples. Check!

Soft, luscious brie. Check!

Fresh, vibrant baby spinach. Check!

All of that on hearty bread that is slathered with a Dijon mayonnaise. Check!

I don’t often make sandwiches so when I do it is an event. And this is really good. I love B.L.T’s but I was craving something that felt a bit more fall like than summer. I’ll never turn down a beautiful, ripe tomato, but I wanted to change things up for the upcoming season so I swapped them out for apples. I’d just have to enjoy a PSL while eating the sandwich and it would be a perfect fall meal. #basicandlovingit

I swear the uses of bacon, apples, and brie are endless. It’s just one of those combinations that is timeless. Like peanut butter and jelly, but better because you deserve better. You’re an adult. Eat an adult sandwich!!

I used the Ginger Golds that we picked when we recently went apple picking as they are great eating apples, plus they don’t oxidize and turn brown quickly like a lot of other varieties, so they will taste great and look great in the sandwich.

And of course, bacon is key to this sandwich. We all know that bacon is a versatile ingredient and is easily incorporated into everything from breakfast dishes to burgers to pastas, and, of course, sandwiches. I think that any kind of bacon works but I used Trader Joe’s Apple Smoked Bacon.

I argue that you need a nice, hearty bread for this sandwich. The bread is just as much a key player in this game as the rest of the ingredients. It is what starts and ends the sandwich. Show it some love.

I recently made one of these sandwiches, stood at my door while eating it, taking in the sheets of rain dump down from the grey clouds above. It definitely made for a better rainy afternoon.
