I’m constantly guilty for looking at the clock and realizing that it’s 2:00 and I need lunch…like now! It’s usually a mad dash scanning the refrigerator for leftovers or resorting to a PB & J. If I’m not dying of hunger, I’m usually patient enough to boil pasta. But lately I’ve added something to my lunch lineup that has me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. It falls into the comfort food category which is always good during these long winter months. It also can be pulled together quickly and is super satisfying.
Introducing my new-found love during lunch: the Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Bacon, Apple, & Cheddar. The ingredients all paired together are like a match made in heaven. Whole grain mustard smeared on each slice of toasted bread is the finishing touch that makes this sandwich one of the best out there. The creamy melted cheddar is the perfect contrast for the crispy applewood smoked bacon and the tart granny smith apple gives off a slightly sweet note that is balanced by the tangyness of the mustard. A real winner in my book. Just writing this post is making me excited for lunch today!
