Sandwich Special: Cheddar-Fruit Round

The humble sandwich is often squished into a lunchbox, stashed inside a purse and regaled as the poor cousin to a weekly treat in the food court or at the tuckshop... No more I say!

Today I'm starting a little Sandwich Special.  Sandwiches were always such a specialty when I was growing up and there was no sadness about finding one of my mums sandwiches in my lunchbox.

Hurrah the sandwich I say!

Cheddar-Fruit Round

(makes 4 sandwiches)

  • 185g cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 12 slices of date bread
  • 1 medium apple, cored and cut into rings
  • 4 canned sliced pineapple rings, drained
  • 1/2 cup coarsely shredded carrots

In a mixer bowl, beat together cream cheese, cheddar cheese and milk until smooth.

To assemble the sandwiches spread one side of 8 of the bread slices (see the recipe for date bread if you'd like to make fresh bread!) with some of the cheese mixture.  Top 4 of the cheese slices with an apple slice.  Top with the remaining cheese-spread slices, cheese side up.  Add a pineapple slice to each and divide the carrot among the 4 sandwiches.  Top with remaining slices.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
