When PartySugar posts her nachos for the week every Thursday, I ogle her pictures with envy. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore and I begged her to let me make a version of my own. I decided to try making nachos that are both savory and sweet, an element that I enjoyed in a grilled cheese sandwich a few weeks ago. There aren't many ingredients in this recipe, but each adds something to the flavor profile of the nachos: The brie melts perfectly; the gorgonzola provides sharpness; the apples are crispy and refreshing and cut through the heaviness of the cheese; the potato chips are wonderfully spiced and incredibly crunchy; the honey adds a lingering sweetness that can't help but make me smile.
I loved making these nachos and can't wait to do it again. The best part is how easy it was. For the recipe,
8 ounces thick-cut salt and pepper flavored potato chips
4 ounces triple creme brie
2 ounces Gorgonzola dolce
1 small Granny Smith apple
Honey, for drizzling
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cover a baking pan in foil.
- Spread chips evenly across baking pan in a single layer.
- Core the apple and chop it into tiny square pieces. Sprinkle evenly across chips.
- Cut the brie into small pieces and sprinkle evenly across the chips.
- Crumble the Gorgonzola dolce and sprinkle evenly across chips.
- Bake for 10 minutes, until cheese is completely melted. Remove from oven and drizzle with honey. Serve immediately.
Serves 4 to 6 as an appetizer.
