Pure heaven – that’s what this one is!  We only serve it at breakfast for company – I honestly don’t know why.  We want to make guests feel special, but I say I’m special too.  Add to that that this is about as EASY as it gets and there really is no reason we don’t have it more often.


We first experienced this sandwich at some obscure restaurant eight years ago and cannot for our lives remember where the hell it was.  Then we had a baguette sandwich promotional explosion in our company and we had to include this.  Only problem was – was it had no name.  John solved the problem immediately and decisively – the woman who assembled all the sandwiches – her name was …….. you guessed it Sabrina!  And a star was born!


The key to the heavenly goodness is the bread.  You must be sure to get the BEST, CRUSTIEST loaf of French bread possible.  From there it’s SIMPLE!





1 Good Loaf of CRUSTY French Bread – cut open


Drizzle the inside (top and bottom) with honey


Sprinkle on plenty of Toasted Almonds


Place slices of Brie at an angle


Put on the top/lid 


Optional to wrap in foil and or place on a sheet pan


Bake at 400°-425° until Brie is just starting to melt



Slice and serve.

    This is so kick-ass delicious and decadent for breakfast. I say I’m special, too (not like special olympics, special, but special in other ways…okay, sometimes special olympics special, I cannot tell a lie) so I’m making this for breakfast when I go on my retreat.

    Gosh, that looks awesome. Brie and honey? I’m thinking it would be awesome with some thin slices of apple.

    If you fed me like that, I’d come and live with you 🙂

    I just had this in Spain with Iberico ham. I’m crying a little bit right now because I want to go back.

      I received an Iberican ham for Christmas last year. A whole one. A giant one. It was the best Christmas since 1980 when I received an electric race car set.

    honey and cheese on a crusty bread..YUM! I like the name you gave it, Sabrina, reminds me of Audrey Hepburn 🙂

    Some sliced apples would make it just right for me.

    There is something about Brie in a crusty loaf that just makes any sandwich a true temptation!

    And it looks like I found another sandwich to make for lunch! Thank you! 🙂

    Made a fresh French bread (using egg whites in the dough for extra crusty outside and soft inside). Got some honeycrisp apples on the side too. Livin’ large.
