"Just perfect! Can't get much better as far as I am concerned. Sweet, but NOT TOO sweet - crunchy and simple. Kids love this and it is so easy. Four (4) ingredients is all there is. Gala apples, cream cheese, nuts and bread. Not only as a sandwich, but this is also a great breakfast food. Try cinnamon bagels too for a healthy start to the morning. A roasted creamy onion or leek soup is great with these served on the side for a light lunch or healthy dinner. NOW, my preference is to NOT toast my bread, but either way it is delicious. A few diced dried cranberries or cherries are also very nice to add to the sandwich."

Step 1

Bread ... Spread 1/2 of a tablespoon cream cheese on the inside of the top and bottom bread slices. Top each slice with 1/2 tablespoon of the chopped nuts; and press the nuts in a bit - they will stick to the cream cheese. Add the apples to the bottom slice and top with the top slice.

Step 2

Microwave ... OPTIONAL. I like to microwave mine 10-15 seconds to warm up - NOT cook - This is optional. I just like the bread a bit warm; or you can also toast the bread if you prefer that. I happen to like mine un-toasted and warm. It is all personal taste.

Step 3

Serve ... ENJOY! How simple and delicious; but very healthy. Perfect for kids or that light lunch, however, you may be surprised how many adults love these.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I couldn't wait to try this with some fresh apples from the orchard. I liked that it only took a few minutes to make and that first bite had me sold! My kids loved it too. This may sound weird but I think I just found my favorite breakfast!
