This amazingly easy & fabulous tasting sandwich combines the tartness of apples, the creaminess of cheddar, and the crunchiness of bacon on top of 2 slices of artisan sourdough bread slathered in Parmesan butter & grilled to perfection.
Step 1: What You Will Need
1/2 stick butter, softened
2 T. freshly grated parmesan
1 Granny Smith apple
2 oz. sharp cheddar cheese
2 slices bacon (more if you prefer extra crunch!)
2 large slices artisan sourdough bread
If you like more of one particular ingredient, don't hesitate to do more of your favorite. The above is what I used to make a basic sandwich...you can customize by adding more apples, holding the bacon, or even using a different cheese such as Havarti.
Step 2: Preparation
Combine the 2T. grated Parmesan and the 1/2 stick butter in a small bowl.
Thinly slice up the Cheddar cheese into about 8 slices. You can add more/less depending on your palate.
Now, then very thinly slice up your apple. You can use as many slices as you see fit-I ended up using about 8 slices but you can add or subtract slices depending on your taste.
Step 3: Make the Sandwich
1. Sharp cheddar cheese
2. Apple slices
3. Bacon slices
4. (optional) more Apple slices
5. Sharp cheddar cheese
Placing the cheese on the outside, I have found, enables it to melt better around the apples and bacon, encasing them in a cloak of gooey cheddar.
