When it comes to cheese, Brie is my absolute favorite. I am seriously obsessed with it and cannot be trusted with it in the house. So I rarely ever buy it, because I can, and will, sit there and eat the entire package.
But when I came across a light brie cheese at Trader Joe’s I decided to give it a try. It wasn’t quite as soft and decadent as traditional brie, but it was close. And the flavor was fantastic, especially when melted. And for the considerable difference in fat and calories, I felt it was worth it. I figured it would perfectly in my Brie and Apple Panini Recipe.
This low calorie sandwich is so simple, yet the tart apples with the mild brie work so amazingly well together. And it was such an easy recipe to make! I used my Panini press to make mine, but if you don’t have one, you can toast the sandwich in a toaster oven or regular oven. Not quite the same, but still delicious.
Each Brie and Apple Panini is just 6 Points, which isn’t bad for such a tasty sandwich. Serve it with a light salad or roasted veggies and it makes a fantastic Weight Watcher Panini Recipe.
