How many times have you eaten blue cheese and apples and in how many combinations and yet never thought of putting them together in a sandwich. In Cambridge you can get them wrapped with brown paper, and eat them on a bench outside of King’s College while the choir practiced for an upcoming concert and the students rushed around in their robes.
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. You’ll 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.
