Toasted Wensleydale, Grilled Vegetable & Plum and Apple Chutney Sandwich
Okay, I couldn't wait any longer, I had to open one of these bad boys, it's not quite as enjoyable as opening an airtight jar with the satisfying pop, although the chutney is better. Three weeks I think it's been, I just had to and we already managed finished a jar, I think that took two days; that's a new record. The chutney tasted perfectly fine to me, I guess it just goes to show you don't have to wait a month although if you're sensitive to vinegar I guess it's better to be safe and wait it out, I'm a little bias and actually quite like vinegary chutney, but it wasn't noticeable at all.
I met a friend in the morning for coffee and after walking the 3 miles home I sat in the kitchen kind of wanting a nap, I've been so tired recently, and decided to make this sandwich, I usually just stick to wensleydale and chutney but figured I'd crank up the nutrition a little, even thought it's a toasted sandwich I kept the cheese solid, which is completely preference I much prefer my wensleydale fresh from the fridge as I think the texture goes better with the chutney.
I ended up making these sandwiches again the next day with a friend, we watched a weird Kristen Wiig film with chutney dripping out our sandwiches.
You will need
1/2 a small courgette/zucchini
1/3 bell pepper
2 slices of bread
3 slices of wensleydale
Spicy plum and apple chutney
Slice the courgette and pepper into strips and heat up the griddle pan. Once the pan is hot place the courgette and pepper strips on to soften and brown on each side.
After the vegetables have softened remove them from the grill pan, set aside and add the bread to lightly toast on either side.
To construct your sandwich; Spread one slice of bread with mayonnaise or butter/marg, place the sliced cheese on the buttered bread and layer the vegetables on top, finish with a generous helping of spicy plum and apple chutney, top with the other slice of bread and enjoy.
Alternatively you could use any other chutney but I would highly recommend making this spicy plum and apple chutney
