Fall recipe: Gluten-free grilled apple and gorgonzola sandwich recipe


Steib_Anne_Chicago_IL

Autumn is in full swing with the leaves changing and crunching beneath our feet as we take weekend jaunts to pick apples and pumpkins. Once we return home we realize, what are we going to do with all of these apples?!

apple-gorgonzola-sandwichEating them plain is an excellent treat, especially the early season Honey Crisp apples, but sometimes it is necessary to get more creative and break the routine. This recipe was originally found in Southern Living, and has become a fall favorite of mine. It was not originally printed as a “gluten-free” recipe, but easily became one with a couple of modifications. This sandwich quickly becomes a satisfying and impressive meal.

Grilled apple and gorgonzola sandwich recipe

Ingredients:

1 package 1/3-less fat cream cheese
4 oz. gorgonzola or blue cheese*
1 T honey
1 thinly sliced apple
arugula
gluten-free sliced bread
roasted chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions:

Combine the cream cheese, gorgonzola and honey in a bowl and season with fresh-ground pepper. Add the walnuts at this time, if using. Spread a tablespoon on each slice of bread, add sliced apples and a handful of arugula. Grill on a griddle or a pan.

The cheese mixture also makes a great dip for apples, if you want to forgo the sandwich.

* Most blue cheese and gorgonzola produced the USA are gluten-free, and not started on bread. BelGioioso is one brand that is verified gluten-free, as is Rosenborg blue cheese and Point Reyes blue cheese.
