Camembert-Caramel Apple Grilled Sandwich
I've discovered a few 'gourmet' grilled cheese sandwich combinations that I really enjoy. This one -- with salted caramel, chives and thyme -- really intrigued me. The mild camembert gives it that melted cheesy goodness while letting the other flavors come through. And who doesn't love a little salted caramel even before you get to dessert?!
I’m not a chef; my formal culinary training is pretty limited. I just like food. I’m a high school teacher, and about 5 years ago, my teaching assignment shifted from full time English to including some culinary classes (which I enjoy!). I attend culinary educators’ workshop(s) at the local technical college’s culinary program and/or at other culinary institutions (like Johnson & Wales Colorado campus) for a week most summers to improve my skills. So the lack of culinary training is…well, a work in progress! As a teacher, my time and my budget are both limited. I started this blog simply to have a place to store recipes that I could search by name, ingredients, etc. You’ll also see a few recipes posted for my students’ access…stuff we’ve made in classes. You’re welcome to browse...
