Grilled Cheddar, Brie and Apple Sandwiches
Craving Something Healthy
of sourdough or hearty whole grain bread - thicker slices taste best
about 1 tablespoon olive oil
or olive oil spray
softened at room temperature
of sharp cheddar
grated, at room temperature
I use Gala, sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices
Heat a nonstick frying pan to medium high heat.
Lightly brush the olive or spray each side of each slice of bread.
Toast one side of each slice of bread lightly in the frying pan.
Remove the bread, and spread the brie on the toasted sides of 2 pieces of bread. Top with the cheddar and 2-3 slices of apple. Top each with the second slice of bread - toasted side down.
Return the sandwiches to the pan, and lightly toast on each side.
Slice each sandwich in half and serve immediately.
Sharp cheddar won't melt as smoothly as processed cheese slices, so if you need it to melt a bit more, just pop the grilled sandwiches in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds.
