The farmer's market in my college town is, honestly, quite large--it can take up to 30 minutes just to walk around and try to LOOK at everything, much less do close inspections & purchase! Not to mention the sideshows of booths set up, live music, and of course, the pre-made food section for those wanting a delicious breakfast sandwich or cinnamon bun to start the morning off right. Mmm.
Anyway, after my first venture there a couple of weeks ago, I used some of my delicious, fresh purchases to create myself a tasty little afternoon delight--this grilled cheese made with Swiss Honey Bread, Wabash Cannonball Cheese (a specialized goat cheese), and thin Fuji apple slices! Delicious.
Grilled Cheese Social, this summer. I mean, what a genius idea--a blog full of different ways to make a grilled cheese sandwich! Why couldn't come up with this simple yet brilliant idea, eh?!
|The heavenly Wabash Cannonball cheese...mold & ash on top.|
(I'd actually been pairing the bread up with the cheese for a day or two just as a snack before I decided to get it all gooey and melted...so I was prepared for the sort of love that was about to ensue.)
In any case, this really doesn't call for a recipe or instructions, but I'll go ahead and give it to you anyway!
|Oh god, I'm drooling...|
"Gourmet" Apple & Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich
5(ish) thin slices of a fresh Fuji apple
2 Slices Swiss Honey Bread (or your favorite sweet, doughy bread)
Wabash Cannonball Goat Cheese (or some other goat cheese of your choice)
- Put a skillet on your stove top at about medium heat...not too high now, we want all the flavors to combine sloooowly & not burn the bread. :)
- Goat cheese is crumbly, so put some on a slice of the bread in the microwave to soften it up, then spread over the bread slice to be sure of solid coverage on at least one side.
- Butter the other slice of bread on one side
- Layer the apple slices on the slice of bread with the cheese, and sprinkle some more cheese crumbles in between/on top of the layers as you go.
- Put the buttered slice of bread on top, butter side up, and then place that side down on the skillet!
- Whilst the first side browns on the skillet, butter the now up-facing side of the bread slice with melted cheese on it, & then flip over.
- Try not to cry when you eat this sandwich. Because you really might. (Pair with leftover apple slices for a healthy, delicious lunch!)
