Cook time 6 mins
Yield Makes 2 sandwiches


  • 4 large slices country wheat bread
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground or whole grain mustard
  • 6 ounces grated Cheddar (such as aged Vermont Cheddar)
  • 6 slices extra-thick bacon, cooked
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter

How to Make It

  1. Spread each bread slice evenly with mustard. Arrange half of cheese and all of the bacon and apple slices on 2 bread slices. Top with remaining cheese and bread slices, and press together gently.
