Went into the kitchen yesterday and noticed these two apples setting on the counter. Well got the idea to make a sandwich with what ever cheese I had in the refrigerator and came up with this. Had a package of Havarti cheese and another hard cheese in the crisper so I pulled out the Havarti.As I was making them our neitghbor came to visit and I made her one also. Well, needless to say we all went a little nuts over this sandwich. My neighbor wrote down what I had done with the apples. We will be making these again very soon. I'm thinking this could also be a great dissert dish also. MMMMMM?
