Luna Park is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. Nice enough for a date, casual enough for a regular weeknight dinner, with great cocktails and a fun modern take on classic comfort food. Oh, and if you follow Luna Park on Twitter, you’ll see that they’re super generous with discounts and coupons.
Nearly every time I go, I order the Warm Goat Cheese Fondue with Grilled Bread and Sliced Apples—a little pot of bubbling goat cheese with crisp Granny Smith apples, sliced thinly enough to be delicate and thickly enough to hold all the gooey goat cheese goodness and crusty pieces of ciabatta that have been lightly charred on the grill. So. Freaking. Delicious.
On a recent visit, it occurred to me that these flavors might work nicely together in a sandwich, and, well…I was right.
- 4 slices good sandwich bread (I like sourdough) $2.50 for a loaf
- 3 oz. soft, spreadable goat cheese at room temperature 3.50 for 4 oz.
- salt and pepper to taste Pantry
- 1 Granny Smith apple, sliced very thinly $0.50
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature $1 for a stick
Total Cost of Ingredients $7.50
Spread all four slices of bread with the goat cheese. Place the apple slices on two of the bread slices, top with salt and pepper and cover each with the remaining two slices of goat cheese-spread bread.
Spread the outsides of the sandwiches with the butter. Set aside.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Grill sandwiches for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden-brown and crisp.
Serve warm, sliced on the diagonal.
Makes 2 sandwiches.
