Black and Orange Recipe: Pumpernickel Grilled Cheddar with Apple and Thyme
Editor's Note: Every Wednesday this month, our fabulous intern Kerry will share an original black and orange recipe that's simple, festive, and elegant. Nothing scary about it, except the colors!
Halloween is a kids' holiday that adults just can't bring themselves to stop celebrating. So this recipe does double duty. Leave out the Dijon and thyme for the kids, or leave them in for an adult version of the ultimate kids' food: grilled cheese. The black of the pumpernickel bread and the orange of the sharpest cheddar melt together in a savory Halloween bite, tempered by the sweet slices of apple. The colors are a little trick of the eye; the sandwich is a little treat for yourself.
