Easy Apple Sandwiches

Me on Monday: Look, I baked you this hot, fresh loaf of paleo bread!
Me on Friday: Here’s a sandwich, yes I know that’s an apple. It’s just like bread basically. I don’t know what kind of bread. Somewhere there is bread like this.
Sound familiar? If you love real food but you don’t always love how much time it takes to pull together meals, I have just the recipe for you. Or actually, UNrecipe, because it’s so simple it can’t really be called a proper recipe.
These delicious and easy apple sandwiches work well for a quick lunch at home, or they can be packed for school or work. And I do really mean delicious, too – the first time I sent one with my husband for the road he actually texted me to rave about it.
I make turkey Swiss sandwiched with apple slices for potlucks and weekends. Devoured. Apple skidded slices with curried chicken salad, no ghost, are a huge hit.
We use natural peanut butter. Will it be too runny to make in the morning and eat by lunchtime? I’m just afraid with the peanut butter being so thin it will be runny. I could always make my own peanut butter in the food processor too…just wondering!

Hi Abby. It could be a little runny. I often drain much of the oil from the peanut butter that I need to be more sturdy. I keep another container fully intact and that’s the one I use for spreading on sandwiches and crackers.

↠ Griddle: By far, the best way to make breakfast sandwiches is with a griddle. This way you can toast the English muffins, fry the eggs, and cook up the patties all at the same time. This GSI griddle fits perfectly over most 2-burner stoves.
↠ Cooler: You’ll definitely want a cooler for this recipe (see: ground pork). If you haven’t upgraded your cooler already, now might be a good time to pick up one of the new roto-molded models.
Apple, Onion & Sharp Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I was feeling a little silly about posting a grilled cheese sandwich until I remembered how easy it is to get stuck in a lunch rut and how hard it can be to think of what to stick between slices of bread when you let yourself get stupid-hungry.
So that’s my disclaimer and here is what is officially my favorite fall lunch: a crispy grilled cheese sandwich with sharp white cheddar, crunchy apple slices, and red onions on Pumpernickel. Add a pop of Dijon mustard and wash it down with a glass of cold, cloudy apple cider or a good beer and you are living fall the way it’s meant to be lived.
Let’s get ready to lunch. Treat yourself to a nice loaf of Pumpernickel and some good sharp cheddar cheese. Cut a few slices of bread, give each side a good smear of Dijon, and start building your sandwich. Sprinkle cheese over the mustard, shingle apple slices over the cheese, sliced red onions go on top of the apples Grind a little black pepper over the top and add a little more cheese to help it all hold together.
Top with the second piece of bread and get it in a hot pan.
Oddly enough, I do own a panini press…
…but, I hate it. This works much better and I still end up with the crispy sandwich I’m craving without having to spend time trying to access a small appliance from the depths of a really messy cabinet.
Grill the sandwiches until they’re golden and toasty and cheese is beginning to melt out the sides. Cut ’em in half, pour yourself a tasty beverage, and get at that glorious grilled cheese!
Coming up with healthy snack options is essential in a house full of growing boys. Somedays I feel as if I’m doing nothing but serving up food to my three guys. I try to make sure that some of their snacks involve fruits and veggies of some sort and I’ve found that pairing them with something else makes them a little more exciting to eat. So I decided to try out apple sandwiches and the boys loved them.
These are a great snack option because there’s so many different things you could spread on your apples. I decided to try peanut butter since my boys can’t get enough peanut butter and some chèvre (goat cheese) because that’s one of my favorite things to snack on. Both got a little drizzle of honey to sweeten the deal.
Other yummy options that might be worth trying out are greek yogurt, Nutella, cookie butter or this brown sugar apple dip would be great sandwiched in! And sprinkling on some granola, raisins or mini chocolate chips would be delish too. And I think drizzling on some salted caramel sauce is a definite must-try!
To make apple sandwiches, just wash, slice and core your apples. (I used tiny cookie cutters on some for fun shapes for the boys). Then spread a bit of chèvre or peanut butter on a slice, drizzle on a little bit of honey and top with another apple slice.
Do you have any go to healthy-ish snacks for us to try out? I’m always looking for more things to keep my always hungry crew satisfied…
How To Keep Your House Warm Without Breaking The Budget…
Does your house get cold in the winter? The usual suggestions to keep your house warmer, such as adding insulation, double-glazing, or a new boiler, are all very expensive. If you’re on a stricter budget you don’t have to just put up with the cold at home though. Here are some wallet-friendly ways to stay warm this winter, some of which can also improve your carbon footprint. Use Tin Foil One way to stop your radiators from losing heat, especially the ones that are on walls shared with outside, is to place heat-reflecting foil behind the radiators. The foil stops the heat from escaping through the wall and will reflect it back into … [Read More. ]
2 Quick Tips
Although you can totally slice your apples with a sharp knife, this super simple mandoline slicer makes the process quick and easy while also creating even slices.
Also, if you have a mesh strainer, you can use it to “sift” the cinnamon onto the apples evenly. Just place the cinnamon in the basin of the strainer – I use the smallest one I have – and then position it over the apple slices. Tap it gently to create an even coating of cinnamon on the chips.

Lunch Better: Apple, Ham And Raclette Sandwich
Blogger Meike Peters, of the acclaimed Eat in My Kitchen, has a new cookbook filled with her favorite recipes. Inspired by European comfort food and Mediterranean classics, this collection of 100 dishes is a must-read for anyone looking for a cooking lesson with inimitable charm. This apple, ham and raclette sandwich is a hearty, flavor-packed way to switch up your lunch.
Imagine a cold gray morning in the early days of fall — the air silent and misty, a quiet chill hinting at the coming change of light and temperature. This is the moment when you realize that it’s time for summery treats to make way for food that’s more hearty and rich. A ham and cheese sandwich sounds just right.
It’s not winter yet, and autumn apples shine in glowing gold, orange, and red. The flavors are sweet and saturated, almost overly ripe. All the fruit is now at its peak and ready to show off what’s been collecting under its skin for months.
For this sandwich, I prefer to use an old apple variety that’s sour and juicy, like Belle de Boskoop. It’s firm but softens slightly when sautéed in coriander-infused butter. The spiced fruit pairs so well with rustic ham, but we’re not done yet. Aromatic grilled raclette sinks into every bite, and the whole thing is sandwiched on a crusty bun. Altogether, this seems like the best thing that could happen to ham and cheese.
