Author Notes: How many times have I eaten blue cheese and apples and in how many combinations? And yet I had never thought of putting them together in a sandwich, wrapped with brown paper, to be eaten on a bench outside of King’s College while the choir practiced for the upcoming Christmas concert and the students rushed around in their robes.
Hardly a recipe here, but I’ll still share it.
Makes approximately 4 sandwiches
- 1 fresh baguette, cut into sandwich parts
- 1 tablespoon good quality unsalted butter, per sandwich (so 4 tbsp if making 4 sandwiches)
- 1 apple, Cox’s or Gala preferably (2 apples for 4 sandwiches)
- 1 slice of English blue cheese, preferably a Stilton (again, or 4 slices for 4 sandwiches)
- Spread the butter onto the bottom half of your sandwich parts.
- Cut the apple into wedges about ½ inch thick. I find that I need about a half an apple for a 6-inch long sandwich.
- Pile the apple wedges onto the buttered half of the baguette.
- Lay the slice of blue cheese on top of the apple wedges and top with the other half of the baguette.
- Give it a gentle smash, and enjoy.
