Apple, Cheddar & Bacon Sourdough Sandwich

Picture of Apple, Cheddar & Bacon Sourdough Sandwich
One day I was in the kitchen (like I am 99% of the time) and whilst rummaging through the pantry looking for ingredients to create a sandwich for my lunch, I spied a block of sharp cheddar cheese, a lone Granny Smith apple, some bacon that had been fried earlier that morning, and a loaf of artisan sourdough bread made from this amazing recipe. Then, suddenly I realized what a delicious combination these ingredients would make! Everything else fell into place, and a sandwich was born.

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

Picture of What you will need
For one scrumptious sandwich, you will need the following:

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 can customize by adding more apples, holding the bacon, or even using a different cheese such as Havarti.

Step 2: Preparation

Next, you will make your Parmesan butter-
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.

It's lunchtime now, and it's far too empting to run out of college, sprint back home and make myself one of those.
You should change it to Apple, Bacon, and Cheese so it's the ABC Sandwich

Why The Frig would anybody waste what is argueably the best sandwich ever by dipping it in shagging peanut butter?
