Recipe | Apple & Gouda Toast with Sea Salt & Honey

Hey y’all! It’s Monday. And It’s beautiful. And my weekend was perfect. Entirely too relaxing but exactly what we needed to pull through the last bouts of jet leg. Unfortunately, I have a sick man at home, but at least I’m able to power up with vitamins and attempt to side-step this one.

I made this recipe last night – what an awesome easy Sunday meal. My inspiration came from one of the best food blogs out there, Half Baked Harvest. Put a little salad on the side, or make it even more simple, and just have the toast. It is plenty filling.


Apple & Gouda Toast with Sea Salt & Honey

Serves 2 


  • 4 slices whole-grain honey & oat bread (I love Birds and the Bees from A Bread Affair)
  • 1 gala apple, cored, sliced thin
  • 4 – 6 slices gouda, thin (or 2 cups shredded)
  • 4 Tbsp smooth Dijon mustard
  • 6 – 8 leaves fresh sage, some ripped, some whole
  • organic honey, for drizzling
  • sea salt, for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 425F. 

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay out 4 slices of bread. Smear Dijon on the face-up side of each slice of bread. Top with a few ripped pieces of fresh sage. Place gouda on top. Sprinkle with sea salt, then arrange apple on top. 

Place in oven for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and brown. Finish with another sprinkle of sea salt, a drizzle of honey, and some fresh sage. 



I cannot think of anything better to kick-off a beautiful autumn week! Apples, honey, sage. To me, those are all Fall words! 🙂
