How to Make A Taste of Autumn
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil, and arrange bacon slices on top.
Cook for approximately 15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp.
- In a small skillet over low to medium heat, add 2 tablespoons butter, sliced apples, 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 cup chopped pecans, and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. Saute for approximately 10 minutes.
- On work surface or cutting board, place down 4 slices raisin bread, and spread each slice with 1 tablespoon pumpkin butter. Next, arrange slices of cranberry cheddar( approximately 5-6 on each slice) on top of pumpkin butter. Divide apple mixture evenly on top of cranberry cheddar among each sandwich. Place 3 slices each of bacon over apple mixture on each sandwich. Top with approximately 4 slices of brie. Spread the additional 1 tablespoon of pumpkin butter on inside of top slice of raisin bread, and place on top of each sandwich.
- Wrap each sandwich in aluminum foil and place in oven until cheeses are melted.
Heat a grill pan on low to medium, and add 1-2 tablespoons butter, depending on size of pan (may have to grill 2 sandwiches at a time).
Place oven heated sandwiches in grill pan, and grill several minutes on each side.
