Recipe: Turkey, Cheddar, Apple Sandwiches with Maple Mayo

Several weeks ago I posted a little article called Memorable Mondays: Becoming Johnny Appleseed. I wrote a bit about my first apple picking experience; of course, while it was fun to pick apples, I had to find something to do with them afterwards. Originally, I planned on kicking off my first recipe post with this apple tart that I was going to make.

Well, I made it, and it was awful. My family had mixed reactions to it, and though we all agreed the crust was awesome, the rest of the tart was forgettable. Going back to the drawing board, I decided to go with something simpler: a sandwich. I’m a big fan of inventive sandwiches, and this one was great for the fall weather. So, without taking up more of your precious time, I present you with this simple and filling sandwich that puts together the best of both the sweet and savory world.

  1. This sandwich sounds great! Sorry your tart didn’t turn out. What in the world made it bad?

    • Thanks! The tart was a recipe that I found in the newspaper- the crust was actually quite good, but the filling has the consistency of apple sauce, which I didn’t like. All that was in it was apple, lime, sugar, and two eggs…so maybe there wasn’t enough in there for it to really set more strongly. My sister didn’t mind it, but it wasn’t really my type of treat.
