I Wish It Was Brunch sandwich

Deborah Baic/The Globe and Mail

For a smokier taste, substitute Applewood smoked cheddar.


3 to 4 slices back bacon

Walnut bread

Honey mustard

Maple cheddar

Shaved granny smith apple


As-soon-as-you-get-up prep: Fry 3 to 4 slices back bacon until the edges are browning and crisp. Inhale deeply.

Assembly: You can assemble everything at home, but leave out the back bacon if you’re able to warm it in the office microwave. Spread both sides of the walnut bread with honey mustard, add slices of maple cheddar and shaved Granny Smith apple. (For paper-thin slices use a mandolin if you have it. You just want the apple to add a cool tang, not a solid crunch.)
