Brie, Apple and Mustard Toastie

Looking at this sandwich I'm guessing you're thinking lunch? You'd be completely right to think such a thing. I will admit though, I had it for breakfast, well, brunch. I hope brunch doesn't have to be after 12pm....

Today is cold, grey, wet, dull and so dreary. A bowl of cereal with ice cold milk just wasn't going to cut it. For breakfast, sometimes I like to eat toast, a few slices of cheddar cheese with some sliced apple on the side. I opened the fridge this morning to see a honking piece of Brie staring out at me.

I really only had one option and it was to make a toasty. 

Do you see the molten cheese, doesn't it look like the best toastie? The apple softens ever so slightly and releases a tiny amount of juice that mixes with the hot mustard mayo and just makes everything mmmmm. 

I will insist that you make this toastie in a frying pan to get the gorgeous golden crust.
