The New England Classic

This recipe actually comes from the Hillside Cafe at Boston College – my alma mater.  My senior year, I literally ate this sandwich every. single. day.  Try making it and you’ll see why!


  • Smoked or maple honey deli turkey (I like to use Boar’s Head Maple Honey Turkey)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • Yellow cheddar cheese
  • Fresh sliced country bread (I like to use a nice, crunchy boule)
  • Honey mustard
  • Olive oil


  • First, either spray or brush the outside of two slices of bread with olive oil
  • Flip the bread over and spread the honey mustard along the inside of the two slices of bread
  • Next, place a layer of thinly sliced apple on one bread slice
  • Layer the turkey on top of the apples (as much or as little as you desire)
  • Top the turkey with a slice of cheddar cheese
  • Place the other piece of bread on top of your sandwich and place it in a sandwich press or grill both sides of it in a frying pan over medium heat
  • Voila!  Tastes like college all over again…

  1. Great piece, thank you – this is an all-time great sandwich. One small note – I believe this is actually made with cranberry bread, which significantly ups its awesome quotient.

    • Yes, you’re right! I think it’s actually a cranberry apple bread… so good. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to find anything quite like it, so I’ve had to settle for plain bread.
