  • Broil the bread until lightly toasted, 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn the bread over on the baking sheet and place back under the broiler to lightly toast the other side, 2 to 4 minutes.

  • Take the bread from the oven and spread 2 tablespoons of hummus on each piece. Lay the apple slices on top of the hummus and sprinkle the cheese over the apples.

  • Broil the sandwiches open-faced until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 3 to 4 minutes. Sandwich two slices of bread together, to make four sandwiches.

Editor's Note

Make this sandwich even better by using homemade Easy Hummus.

I am making these for my daughters wedding reception. She is decorating with apples so everything we are eating is apples. I tried these at home and they were wonderful. But here are my changes. I use an Asagio sourdough bread9available at Costco. I also used Gala apples feta cheese and some sudried tomatoes for color. Then I cut them in 4ths for wonderful appetizers. Read More

I made this for my husband and me. I used 100% whole wheat bread storebought hummus granny smith apples and sharp cheddar. My husband picked the apples off the sandwhich and ate them but didn't like the combo together. I thought it was just "okay". I had high hopes for the sandwich because I love all the ingredients but it just wasn't great. I ate it but probably would not make again. Read More

I used whole wheat pita bread instead of multigrain sandwich bread. I only used one apple because my Granny Smith apple was too large and two of them would have overwhelmed the recipe. I diced the apple instead of cutting it. I will definitely make this again. It had an unusual but good flavor. Read More

I thought this was great. Very interesting combo - I like cheese and apples together but never thought of including hummus with them! To make it easier I just popped my whole wheat bread in the toaster first then used Sabra Classic Hummus and thinly sliced Honeycrisp apples (all I had on hand) with sliced sharp Cheddar and stuck it in my toaster oven. It was definitely different and in a good way! I will totally make this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

What an unexpectedly awesome sandwich! Apples Hummus is an amazing flavor combo. I use whole wheat rolls and toast them on my stovetop. Once I threw a small handful of spinach between the apples and cheese to add some vegetable that was great too. Slice the apples as thin as you can they way they get "cooked" a bit more during broiling which really brings out the tangy sweetness. Read More

This sandwich is great and extremely easy. I used homemade humus and a heavy whole grain bread. It's perfect for those nights when you don't have enough time to cook. Read More

When I took the first bite I wasn't sure I liked this...I liked each item individually but not thinking I liked them together! After each successive bite the flavors were growing on me. By the time I ate the entire sandwich I had decided I liked it and would definitely make this recipe again. I used Honey Crisp apples because that is what I had in the house next time I'll try to stick to the recipe and use Granny Smith. Read More
