 100_0305_650x488.jpg

What:

  • 1 Slice Whole Wheat – Toasted
  • 1 Fuji Apple – Sliced & Diced
  • 1/2 Tsp. Butter
  • 1 TBSP. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 cup Shredded White Cheddar – Extra Sharp

How:

  • Melt butter in small pan – medium high
  • Stir in apples to coat & saute about 3 minutes
  • Pinch of salt to bring out the flavor of the apple
  • Reduce heat – medium
  • Add Balsamic Vinegar – Allow apples & butter to simmer about 4 minutes so the apples get a bit tender but still have a bite & are fully coated…pinch of salt to balance vinegar & the honey about to be added
  • Pour mixture over toast
  • Drizzle with Honey & Sprinkle w/ Cheddar

Why:

  • Something about the creaminess of the cheddar, saltiness of the balsamic vinegar & sweetness of the honey made this a perfect breakfast treat!

Certainly satisfied my craving…
