Grilled Almond Butter Cheese Sandwich

(to be sung to the theme of the Brady Bunch. ahem.)

Here’s the story of a grilled cheese sandwich.
Who was bored of simply being on her own.

She’d been grilled and grilled and grilled, like the others.
Yet she felt all alone.

Here’s the story, of some almond butter.
And some apple slices, carrot shavings too.

They were three foods, hanging out together.
Blind and without a clue.

Til the one day when miss cheesy met the almond.
And they knew they’d be much than a brunch.

That this food, must be somehow grilled together.
That’s the way it all became my favorite lunch.

My favorite luuuuunch. My favorite luuuunch.
That’s the waaaay, it became my favorite luuuunch.

Please don’t delete me from your life.

Grilled Almond Butter Cheese Sandwich:
(inspired by an old KC favorite sandwich shop back in the day, the Nutty Girl)

What it took for 1:

* 2 slices multi or whole grain bread
* 2 Tbs. almond butter
* 1 carrot, thinly shaven (with a vegetable peeler)
* 1/2 green apple, thinly sliced (with a mandolin)
* 1 thick slice cheddar cheese
* 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil (or butter)

On one slice of bread, spread the almond butter. Top with apple slices, carrots shavings and the cheddar cheese. Press the other slice of bread on top.

Now, you could eat it as is, and it’s fantastic. OR, you could grill it. You should probably grill it.

Heat the oil or butter in a small skillet and grill to perfection. Slice and die.

    I'm trying this! Oddly enough about a year ago my boyfriend brought me a plate with cheese and almond butter on it and I looked at him like he was crazzzy - maybe not so nuts after all!

    I never would have thought of putting cheese and almond butter together. But your beautiful pics of the apples and shredded carrots have convinced me. I'll even forgive the cheesy 70's theme song now running through my head (brilliant way to frame the post, though!)
  3. Cindy August 29, 2012 at 8:18 am #
    Yummerzzzzzz! Def. going to try this one!

    You make a simple sandwich look so purdy! Love the combo of almond butter and cheese (two of the best things in life).

    Bev it looks delish! I bet the layers of flavors are so good in this baby - AB, apple, cheese, mmmm, can you grill me up one now, too :)

    What a crazy combination! I'm pretty sure in a good way. Not sure I can quite imagine what it would taste like, yet it's still a must-try, I'm thinking. I didn't even recognize the song at first; just thought it was a cute poem! :)
  9. Sarah @ The Cyclist's Wife August 29, 2012 at 10:27 am #

    I had to read this whole post in my head to the tune of that song. It's like I physically wasn't able to read it normally.

  20. Katie @ Blonde Ambition August 29, 2012 at 6:02 pm #
    So. As soon as I realized what song I should be reading (singing) this to the tune of, I went back and re-read it, and decided no grilled cheese can ever be consumed without a song. Ever again. Fantastical!
  21. Carrie @ Bakeaholic Mama August 29, 2012 at 6:11 pm #
    Wow! This looks so good!
