Apple Turkey Melt

Makes 1 sandwich. Recipe is from Fork Vs. Spoon blog.

2 slices thick-cut crusty bread (sourdough is great)

2 teaspoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard

2 ounces Gouda cheese, thinly sliced

½ apple, cored and thinly sliced (Granny Smith)

3 to 4 slices turkey (deli or roasted)

1. Heat skillet over medium-low heat.

2. Spread half of the butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place one slice of bread in heated skillet, buttered side down. Spread half of Dijon mustard on the side of bread that is facing up.

3. Layer half of the cheese and sliced apples onto the mustard followed by the turkey slices. Then layer the remaining apple and cheese on top of the sliced turkey.

4. Spread the remaining mustard on the second slice of bread and place bread, mustard side down, onto the sandwich. Buttered side will be facing up.

5. Cook sandwich on medium-low heat until bread becomes lightly toasted and golden brown and the cheese begins to melt, about 5 to 8 minutes per side. If the bread begins to brown too fast, reduce temperature.
