On my way home a couple days ago, I began to daydream about the delicious ways I could eat some farm fresh arugula I'd bought. Knowing I had extra old cheddar and rye bread in the fridge I imagined the following sandwich would be tasty. I have no idea why I thought that marmalade would be a good idea, but oh man, was it ever.

When I was making this, I opened the fridge and took out the first marmalade I saw, which was "Silver Shred." It's a lemon marmalade that is mostly jelly. It was perfect. I haven't tried this with other marmalades, but I imagine they would also be good.
Two slices rye bread
Few slices extra old cheddar
Few leaves of arugula
Half teaspoon marmalade
SUBSTITUTE for marmalade: honey, with lemon juice and rind mixed in
1) Top a slice of rye bread with slices of extra old cheddar
2) Place the two pieces of bread in the oven, or toaster oven, and toast until the cheese melts
3) Dab (spreading doesn't work) the marmalade over the cheese while it's hot
4) Top with crisp, cold arugula
Best. Cheese sandwich. Ever.
Okay, maybe not quite as good as the provolone grilled cheese with bacon, arugula, tomato on challah, but a very close second. No, maybe even better than that.
