The Apple of Our Eye


I had forgotten how much inspiration the Food Network provides Johnnycakes and I with our meal ideas. We haven't been watching as much Food Network over the summer months because of a new exercise class on Saturday mornings and the Sunday Farmer's Market. We recently rediscovered the channel over the long weekend and our heads are already brimming with ideas.

On Saturday, we watched Tyler Florence prepare a delicious sandwich featuring cheddar cheese, Granny Smith apple and bacon during a "soup and sandwich" episode. It looked so appealing that we kept talking about it for the rest of the day. I occasionally enjoy a bagel with tart apple slices and cheddar cheese (thanks to a childhood friend's children's cookbook) so I thought that adding bacon to that combination sounded even better.

Johnnycakes bought the necessary ingredients on Sunday and we finally got around to preparing the sandwich tonight. Preparation was super quick which is just what we needed after a unusually crazy week.

In Couple of Cooks fashion, we also prepared a healthier version that the one featured on the Food Network. We topped rye bread with Cracker Barrel 2% cheddar cheese, thin Granny Smith apple slices and turkey bacon and grilled then in a frying pan. I admit I did cook them in the same pan I fried the turkey bacon so that added some extra fat and calories.

The apple, cheese and bacon is a great combination! I suggest you try it. Thanks Food Network! I can't wait to see what our next inspiration will be.

I heart food network! I'm a fan of Guy's Big Bite, 30-minute Meals and Ace of Cakes. My former roommate was a huge fan of Alton Brown ... I'm a recent convert.
