I first discovered this delectable combination of ingredients when Alex and I were in Vermont on our honeymoon in October. Ever since, this sandwich has been a go-to for an easy, filling weeknight dinner. And every time I bite into this crunchy creation, it tastes like honeymooning in Vermont; I picture the lake we stayed on, the cute little studio, the orange leaves. Heaven, basically. It’s strange how taste and smell can bring back a place just like that, but lucky for us this one’s a taste worth bringing back again and again.
4 slices of your favorite grilled cheese bread, we love sourdough for this one!
6 slices of deli turkey
8 slices of Vermont white cheddar cheese
1/4 of a Granny Smith apple, sliced as thin as you can get it
2 tbsp butter
Makes 2 grilled cheese sandwiches
Just in case you’ve never made a grilled cheese sandwich, here’s what ya do:
Step 1: Butter one side of each piece of bread.
Step 2: Place one slice of bread in a frying pan with butter side down, and assemble the ingredients on top in this order: 2 slices of cheese, 3 slices of turkey (folding them in half makes them fit better), half of your apple slices, 2 slices of cheese.
Step 3: Place the other piece of buttered bread on top, butter side up.
Step 4: Cook the sandwich over medium heat until the down-facing side is golden brown. Flip the sandwich to the other side, being careful not to spill the goods out of the middle, and cook that side until golden brown.
Step 5: Repeat for sandwich number 2!
