What do you do when you have a wine and cheese party, and have several blocks of decadent cheeses leftover? Fontina, Gruyer, Jarlsberg, Chevre? I hope to share a few cheesy recipes in the coming weeks, but today, I’m sharing a super simple combination for a fancy grilled cheese–the ultimate comfort food. This sandwich would be even better on sliced artisan, rustic, or sourdough loaf. I didn’t have anything but whole wheat sandwich bread, so that’s what we used. What you need: sliced bread butter, coconut oil, etc. sliced gouda slices of ham (or bacon!) apple slices Just a tip…I love to layer gouda, then apple, then ham, then another thin layer of gouda…so everything sticks together nice and gooey. Yummy with a bit of dijon…perhaps some apricot or fig preserves? Delish. Try it with my homemade tomato basil soup! Comfort food, elevated. Enjoy!
