Waffles + biscuits + muenster cheese + apples = the best grilled cheese ever! This recipe is SOOOO easy and SOOOO delicious! Ginny got another one of her wild ideas and I went with it. Because she is rarely wrong and because I was hungry. She took a can of biscuits, threw them in the waffle iron and smoldered a layer of muenster cheese and sliced Fuji apples in the middle. The result was a dance on my taste buds.
The waffle iron transformed the biscuits into something totally amazing that went so well with the cheese and apples. To top it off, our neighbors had just gifted us a jar of homemade apple butter which we graciously slathered on top of the sandwiches and devoured in no time.
Ginny has been on a grilled cheese kick lately, and although they are not on the top of my list for dinner items, these recent gourmet creations have satisfied my cravings. When I was a kid, I wondered how adults had so many different kitchen items. Now I understand. The love of good food results in purchasing things that you never thought you would own. It’s nice to have it when you need it.
You could do so many different combinations of cheese and apples with this…Gouda and Fujis, goat cheese and Granny Smith, Cheddar and Honeycrisp. The list goes on and on. The trick is to slice the cheese just thick enough so that it melts, but doesn’t ooze out of the waffle iron too much. Even if it does, you can always enjoy a crisped cheese treat in the side.
On a homestead note, the garden I planted last weekend seems to be doing well. I put in tomatoes, squash, peppers, strawberries, marigolds and watermelons. The watermelons have proven to be challenging, but I think today’s downpour may have saved them from peril. If all goes well, I should be posting recipes with many ingredients from our garden within a few months. Stay tuned!
