Apple Recipes for September #1

Posted on by Holly

Since it’s September now, I’ve fully embraced the coming fall. September in particular always makes me crave apples, and if the closest apple-picking farm to me wasn’t five hours away, I’d be planning a trip to get bushels of apples and gallons of spiced cider.

However, apple-picking or not, I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate apples in recipes to start off my fall cooking/baking routines.

Turkey, Apple, & Brie on Ciabatta Bread with Home-made Sweet Potato Chips

At the beginning of this month (or let’s be honest, midway through August), I went looking for apple based recipes for September and one of the tasty & easy sounding ones was a Turkey, Apple, Swiss Melt.

I used this recipe last with a few modifications to the bread and cheese, and I used my super simple home-made sweet potato chips recipe for a nice fall tasting side. I made this for dinner for myself and my boyfriend so this recipe makes two servings.


  • 1 sweet Potato
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Rosemary
  • 1 green apple
  • soft Brie
  • 2 mini Ciabatta rolls
  • sliced Turkey
  • honey
  • Dijon Mustard


To start with the chips, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and begin slicing your sweet potato.

Try to keep your slices as consistent as possible.

Added your slices to a large bowl and toss them in olive oil and rosemary.

Place your slices on a un-greased cookie sheet.

Place the cookie sheet with the sweet potato slices into the oven and let cook for 15 minutes. At that point, flip the slices and return to the oven for another 15 minutes or until brown at the edges.

Once finished, remove each slice carefully and put to the side.

Now it’s time to actually start preparing the sandwich. Start by slicing your green apple. Try to keep the slices as thin as possible.

I thought it would be nice to toast the bread so I after slicing each ciabatta bun into two pieces, I buttered them and placed them in oven on broil until slightly toasted.

Mix a tablespoon of honey with a tablespoon of Dijon mustard to make a tangy sauce for the sandwich.

Now for the brie. I used a brie spread which was very easy to apply to the bread, but you can you any kind of soft brie.

With the brie and mustard applied, begin to add your apple slices and your turkey. After that, just finish your sandwich by bringing each side together.

Serve with your sweet potato chips and enjoy!
