29 Sep cheese + apple toastie
Sandwiches for supper is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered. Once upon a time, a sandwich meant ham and cheese but these days we have a wealth of creative sandwich fillings to play with. Pairing apple with smoked cheese for a satisfyingly crunchy sambo with a distinctly autumnal feel.
Apple and Smoked Cheese Sandwich
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
2 slices of farmhouse white (or your favourite bread for toasting)
1 teaspoon of wholegrain mustard
50g of smoked applewood cheese, sliced
Half an apple
- Heat the grill in your oven. Toast one side of your bread, keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn.
- Take the toast out from under the grill. On the untoasted side, spread the wholegrain mustard. Layer both pieces of bread with slices of the cheese.
- Return the bread to the grill for 3 to 5 minutes, cooking until the cheese is molten and bubbling.
- Take the cheesy toast out from under the grill. Slice the apple and add the slices to both pieces of toast. Now sandwich the toast together and slice in half for a cheesy, crunchy treat.
