aaa3OK, so my good friend, and sometimes Lost Cowboy contributor, Lynda sent me this recipe for a Grilled Apple, Cheddar and Mustard Sandwich a couple of weeks ago and I was all over it. I love slices of apple paired with a wedge of sharp cheddar cheese so this is perfect for me. I am making this today (sans the mayo) to have along with the lentil soup I have simmering.

Grilled Apple, Cheddar and Mustard Sandwich

You’ll need:

  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise, optional
  • 2 slices hearty white bread
  • Grainy mustard or Dijon mustard, to taste
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • Slices of peeled Fuji or Granny Smith apples

Heat a cast iron skillet or grill pan to medium. If you are using the mayonnaise, stir it together with the butter in a small bowl. Spread one side of each piece of bread with this mixture. On the other side of one slice, spread mustard, then one slice of the cheese, apples, then another slice of cheese. Top with the second buttered slice.

Fry on both sides until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted and golden, 2 to 4 minutes a side.

I am not sure where Lynda found the recipe – but I think I tracked it back to the source – the great cooking and family life blog Alexandra’s Kitchen – find it here.
