IRENE DOUGLAS SPECIAL APPLE HUMUS SANDWICH
When I recently gave some of my overly abundant apples to my neighor, Irene, she shared her favorite light lunch sandwich with me. It sounds a bit unusual, however is truly delicious—especially if you always liked fresh apples with peanut butter. It is sort of a take-off of those
flavors. Also, you could use slices of a baguette and serve small versions of this for an appetizer.
Yield: 1 open face sandwich
1 thick slice of sour dough or crusty bread
2 Tablespoons humus
1 small to medium apple, cored and thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons grated cheese, such as the cheddar and Monterey Jack mixture
1. Toast the bread. Preheat the broiler on low. Generously spread the humus on the toasted bread.
2. Arrange the slices of apple on the humus and top with the grated cheese and place under the broiler until the cheese melts.
