Culinary Adventures: A Fall Sandwich

This recipe post isn't really a recipe post- it's more a "here are some awesome things to put on a sandwich" post.  But it really is an awesome sandwich, so I figured I should share it with you anyway.

This is really just a grilled cheese sandwich with a twist- and it's based on a sandwich that Panera had on their menu briefly a year or two ago, so I can't even claim it's original!  Also, it's not technically grilled- I distribute everything between two slices of bread and pop them, open-faced, in the toaster oven until the bread is crisp and the cheese is all melty and gooey.  So it's a "toasted cheese" sandwich.  But that doesn't sound appetizing, for some reason.  So I'm calling this sandwich a fall sandwich, because it tastes like everything fall should taste like- warm and gooey and crisp and crunchy.

A Fall Sandwich
adapted from that sandwich I had at Panera that one time

-sourdough bread slices
-thinly sliced ham (I went with what was labeled "black forest ham" at the deli...honey ham is good here, too)
-a few slices of cheddar cheese
-a few slices of gruyere cheese
-stone ground mustard
-1 green apple, thinly sliced

-Spread mayo on both slices of bread.  On one slice, layer the cheeses and the mustard.  On the other, layer the ham and apple slices.  Place both slices in the toaster oven and toast until the bread has a nice crunch and the cheese is bubbly and melted.  Assemble the two halves of the sandwich and serve with any leftover apple slices.

What's your favorite sandwich to eat this time of year?

Much love,
