Apricot & Brie Gluten-Free Breakfast Toast with Spiralized Apple and Leek

Apricot & Brie Gluten-Free Breakfast Toast l Steph in Thyme www.stephinthyme.com #sayitwithhomemade @bonnemamanus #ad

Mother’s Day was always a special time in our house when we were young.

It was a chance for my two sisters and I to spend the morning in the kitchen with our dad, making breakfast in bed for our mom.

The breakfasts were never grand – simple bacon, eggs, toast, a side of fruit, and a cup of juice.

It was the whole act of putting the breakfast together, plating it on a tray complete with a flower in a vase, that made the occasion special.

If I were to make breakfast in bed for Mom today, I would do things a bit differently.

Sweet. Savory. Cheese. Preserves. Spiralized.

All in one dish on one plate in the form of a simple, yet elegant breakfast toast.

One of the “sweet” aspects of this breakfast toast is a thick slather of Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves.

Bonne Maman is a staple in our house. We love the high-quality flavor and thick, fruity texture. We love even more that Bonne Maman preserves are Non-GMO Project Verified, have no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial coloring or no added preservatives.

The subtle sweetness of the apricot preserves soften the onion-like sharpness of the leeks, balance the creamy richness of the Brie, and complement the fresh juiciness of the spiralized apple.

Serves: 2 toasts
Ingredients
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 leek, sliced into half moons
  • 1 apple, spiralized into thin noodles
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 slices gluten-free bread, lightly toasted
  • 4-5 thick slices of Brie cheese
  • 4-5 tbsp Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Trim the leek, removing the tough end and the green stalk. Slice in half lengthwise, then into half moons. Wash thoroughly to remove any dirt.
  2. Wash and slice off the ends from one large apple. Using a spiralizer kitchen tool, spiralize the apple into thin noodles. Alternatively, you can thinly slice if a spiralizer isn't available. Place apple noodles in a bowl with a teaspoon of lemon juice, to prevent browning.
  3. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the leek slices and stir to coat. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened.
  4. Add the apple noodles to the skillet, tossing together with the leek slices to combine (tongs are useful for this). Cook 1-2 minutes until softened. Remove from heat.
  5. Slice 4-5 thick slabs of Brie cheese. Finely chop walnuts. Set aside.
  6. Lightly toast your choice of gluten-free bread.
  7. Assemble the breakfast toast. First, layer the Brie over each slice of toast. Top with a generous amount of Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves. Next, layer a pile of cooked apple and leek over top. Garnish with crushed walnuts.
  8. Serve immediately (to Mom - in bed!)
