Gluten-free Cheddar, Turkey, Apple Melt

December 13, 2010

With the semester finished, Mark and I decided to take today off. Two well rested hobbits, we ventured to the MFA Boston to see the new Art in America’s Wing. Sadly, the lunch selection was not terribly gluten-free friendly, so we decided to make our own fancy lunch at home. Thus resulted in the, Cheddar, Turkey, Apple Melt our new favorite sandwich. This easy to make, classy twist on an old favorite is quite delectable. The warmed gala apples paired with the sharp cheese is absolutely flavorful. I would have eaten a second but determined to not gain 15 lbs before the holidays, I activated my will power. While I used cheddar as that is what we had in the house, brie, munster or swiss would also be awesome. I had mine with honey mustard while mark had grey poupon and both were delicious.


2 slices of gf bread – I recommend Deland or Sami

2 slices of cheese – cheddar, munster or brie

mustard (optional)

1 gala apple

4 slices of Hillshire Farms Turkey


Chips and pickle (optional)

Warm an apple in the microwave for 1 min. Slice thinly. Spread mustard over each slice of bread. Top with 2 apple slices. Top with 1 slice of cheese. Add turkey and top with final slice of cheese. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. When the pan is hot, put the dressed half of the sandwich into the pan and place the other slice in the pan so that both can brown. Heat for 3 min. Place the loan bread slice on top of the sandwich. If the sandwich is browning too quickly, turn the heat to low.  Heat for another 2 min. Flip the sandwich and press down on the top with a spatula. Continue to brown on each side until your sandwich is browned to your liking. Serve with chips and a pickle if you like. Enjoy!

      Hi Sophie,

      It’s really funny that you read this as breakfast. My husband lived in Germany for a while and is always wanting deli meat for breakfast too. This was actually our lunch but I will definitely consider making this for breakfast as well.
