Bacon, Apple, and Brie Grilled Cheese



My guy loves a sandwich.  Sandwiches rank in the top three of his go-to foods when I’m not at home, right after oatmeal raisin cookies and cold baked beans eaten straight from the tin.  I’m sure that, if I didn’t cook, he would eat sandwiches every single day.

Me…Not so much.  I don’t dislike sandwiches.  They’re an efficient way to get food on the plate or into my lunch bag, and some of them are quite tasty.   It’s just that I rarely find a sandwich exciting.  If you asked me to make a menu for my last supper, sandwiches would not be included.

That having been said, every so often there comes a group of ingredients that just need to be made into a sandwich.  Like the ones I used to make this grilled cheese sandwich last week:


 I cut two slices of fresh baked white bread.


I put grainy mustard on one slice and Brie on the other.


I topped the Brie with cooked bacon


and thinly sliced apple.


I buttered the outside of one slice of bread and put the sandwich, butter side down, in a pre-heated pan, over medium heat.  I buttered the other slice of bread while the sandwich was in the pan.


I cooked the sandwich until the bread was crunchy and golden, and the cheese all nice and melty.


I sliced it in half, put it on a plate and ate it


all


up.

Apple on a sandwich must add a nice clean crunch. Sounds fantastic.
