Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup jarred caramel sauce or dulce de leche
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 1/2 baguette
  • 4 ounces Camembert cheese, rind removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more if needed
  • Flaky sea salt, for topping
Directions
  • Combine the caramel sauce, thyme sprigs and 2 tablespoons water in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until hot, about 1 minute. Cover and keep warm.

  • Cut the baguette into 4 long, angled slices. Divide half of the cheese among 2 bread slices; sprinkle with half of the chives. Top with the apple slices and the remaining cheese, chives and 2 bread slices.

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sandwiches and cook, pressing occasionally with a spatula, until the bread is toasted and the cheese melts, about 4 minutes per side, adding more butter to the pan if needed.

  • Remove the thyme from the caramel sauce and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with the sandwiches for dipping.
