Menus4Moms: Apple Cheddar Melt
A restaurant in my town serves a wonderful open-face apple cheddar sandwich and every time I order it, I realize that I’ve forgotten how much I love it. I decided to recreate it at home and see if I could make a version as good as theirs. I believe that they use a combination of mayonnaise and mustard in theirs, but I’ve only used mayo. You could really use either or a combination of both. The melt is delightful anytime, but it would be a perfect fall lunch with fresh-picked apples. Since I’m impatient, I’m not waiting for fall…

Start with whole wheat bread, mayonnaise, sunflower seeds, an apple, and sharp cheddar cheese slices. Toast the bread.

While the bread is toasting, slice the apple and mix the apple slices with lemon juice to keep them from browning:

When the toast is ready, spread it with the mayonnaise.

Layer the apple slices on each piece. (You may double stack the apples but you may not be able to use the entire apple unless you want to eat with a fork.)

Sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top of the apple slices (yum…)

Top each piece of toast with a slice of cheddar. Yes – my broiler pan has seen better days…

Toast until cheese is melted.

Cut into triangles and serve immediately. Oh my. It’s delectable.
