Ploughman's Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Note: Find Branston pickle in the international aisle of the supermarket, specialty British shops, or online. To make the chunky relish more spreadable, chop finely in the food processor.

2 slices whole-wheat bread
4 slices English Cheddar
1 tablespoon Branston pickle
1/2 apple, thinly sliced

Warm a skillet set over medium heat. Lay bread slices in pan and toast on both sides. Spread each slice of bread with 1-1/2 teaspoons pickle. Lay 2 cheese slices on each bread slice. Layer one slice of bread with apple slices and top with other slice of bread. Grill sandwich until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Yield: 1 sandwich.
