Apples and Friends-Another Hot Lunch
OK, this isn't true, "Apples and Friends", which is an abomination of a salad with apples, marshmallows and Miracle Whip. Still, I thought the name would be appealing to Danny, though I did have to put on quite a show of the apple chasing the block of cheddar about the kitchen trying to hold hands. Apples love cheddar.
Danny simply isn't fond of eggs, so I try to get them into his diet via French toast. This sort of falls into the French toast category, yet can be eaten as a sandwich.
You Will Need:
2 slices thickly cut hearty white bread
1/2 apple, peeled and sliced as thinly as possible
Cheddar cheese (use as much as you like)
A knob of butter
A splash of milk
Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat. Beat the egg and milk in a shallow bowl together. Arrange cheese and apples on slices of bread. Close to make a sandwich. Dip sandwich into egg mixture coating both sides, letting excess run back into bowl. Fry over medium heat until nicely browned on both sides.
