The Prius sandwich
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Andrew Blaskovich slings some of the most sought-after grilled cheese sandwiches in Sacramento via his food truck, Drew-ski's Hot Rod Kitchen. Here's his recipe showing off the sweeter side of his sandwiches.
2 slices of nine-grain wheat bread (he favors Sacramento Baking Co. bread)
1 1/2 tablespoon clarified butter, melted
5 cored 1/8-inch-thick slices of Granny Smith apple (grilled and slightly caramelized)
Four 1-ounce pieces of brie cheese cut 1/8 inch thick
1 tablespoon wildflower honey
Palm-sized amount of smoke- flavored almonds, chopped
Heat a medium-sized sauté pan at medium heat. Brush clarified butter on one side of each piece of bread. Layer on the unbuttered side of one slice half of the brie cheese, the apple slices, honey and almonds. Top with the last half of the brie and the other slice of bread.
Cook in pan until crispy and dark brown, maybe 2 1/2 minutes on each side (it might be a little bit harder to see how brown it truly is since you're using a darker bread to start with.)
Cut in half and then get your grub on.
