Apple, Cheese and Watercress Sandwiches
This, to me, is comfort food. Serve with some tomato soup and you have a perfect meal. It is also great with curry powder mixed in with the butter instead of the mustard. It may sound a little funky, but try it, you may just like it.
4 slices whole-wheat toast
2 tablespoons softened butter
1/2 teaspoon Dijon style mustard
1 apple, peeled and thinly sliced
1 small bunch watercress, stems discarded
1/2 lb extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
Preheat your broiler.
Arrange toast in a cookie sheet. Combine the butter and mustard and spread evenly on the toast. Arrange apple then watercress on the toast, and cover with cheese. (Make sure the watercress is completely under the cheese to prevent it from burning.)
Broil sandwiches about 6 inches from heat until cheese is melted and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

Chocolate works for comforting too.
