Tomato & Gouda, with Spicy Horseradish Mustard on Toasted Rye

Sometimes the simple, basic foods you have laying around can be brought together to create, even by accident, something really good.



Tomato & Gouda, with Spicy Horseradish Mustard on Toasted Rye


1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup dry mustard, ground
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons mustard seed
1 tablespoon horseradish, prepared or grated fresh
1-1/2 teaspoons honey
2 slices rye bread
1 Medium tomato, sliced
2 ounces of gouda cheese, shredded
2 large basil leaves, chiffonade

Combine vinegar, mustard, vinegar, mustard seeds, horseradish, & honey.  Mix together in a blender, and blend until smooth.  Refrigerate.  The longer these flavors meld, the better they are. 
Spread a thin layer of the horseradish mustard on the bread, add the cheese, and tomato.  Put in the broiler for a couple of minutes, to melt the cheese.  Remove, and place the tomato & basil on top and enjoy.   You can also put the tomato on before broiling.
