I have this loaf of whole-wheat sandwich bread I need to use.
Looking in the fridge, there was big ol’ block of sharp Vermont cheddar and some crisp Gala apples.
And some butter, of course.
What else, other than a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch?
Two slices whole-wheat bread, four or five thin slices of apple, two slices cheddar cheese, butter for grilling.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add butter to melt. Build sandwich – one slice bread, one slice cheese, apple slices, another slice of cheese, top with other slice of bread. Put the sandwich in the skillet and weigh down with another skillet, or something similarly heavy (if you have a panini press, it would come in handy here). When it’s brown on the first side, flip it over, weigh it down again and let brown on the second side. Lower heat if necessary to allow cheese to melt before bread gets too brown.
