And why not grilled cheese? There’s nothing pretentious or complicated about grilled cheese -- not when I make it, anyway. And it’s a perfect counterpoint for this overloaded food-intensive time of the year.
The next time you are in the mood for a grilled cheese sandwich (hmmm, I could go for one now), I humbly suggest this combination:
- Challah or sturdy bread, such as sourdough
- Sharp cheddar cheese
- A smear of Dijon mustard
- Sliced apple, such as Cortland, Macintosh, or Granny Smith
