Original recipe yields 4 sandwiches



  1. Preheat the oven broiler. Lay out the bread on a baking sheet.
  2. Broil the bread until lightly toasted, 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn the bread over on the baking sheet and place back under the broiler to lightly toast the other side, 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. Take the bread from the oven and spread 2 tablespoons of hummus on each piece. Lay the apple slices on top of the hummus and sprinkle the cheese over the apples.
  4. Broil the sandwiches open-faced until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 3 to 4 minutes. Sandwich two slices of bread together, to make four sandwiches.

I am making these for my daughters wedding reception. She is decorating with apples, so everything we are eating is apples. I tried these at home and they were wonderful. But here are my changes. I use an Asagio sourdough bread9available at Costco. I also used Gala apples, feta cheese and some sudried tomatoes for color. Then I cut them in 4ths for wonderful appetizers.



I made this for my husband and me. I used 100% whole wheat bread, storebought hummus, granny smith apples, and sharp cheddar. My husband picked the apples off the sandwhich and ate them, but didn't like the combo together. I thought it was just "okay". I had high hopes for the sandwich because I love all the ingredients, but it just wasn't great. I ate it, but probably would not make again.



I used whole wheat pita bread instead of multigrain sandwich bread. I only used one apple because my Granny Smith apple was too large and two of them would have overwhelmed the recipe. I diced the apple instead of cutting it. I will definitely make this again. It had an unusual, but good, flavor.
