Be Sure To Read The Menu Before Ordering A Vermonter Sandwich
Vermont is home to a lesser-known sandwich that features some of the state's most iconic exports, including apples and maple syrup. The Vermonter is humble and not very intimidating on its own, but since recipes vary so widely, you never quite know what you're going to get if you order this sandwich at a restaurant.
Some versions of the Vermonter include ham, some include turkey, and most have a maple syrup element such as maple mustard. Despite all of these variations, to make sure you are eating a true Vermonter and not simply a grilled cheese with ham, look for the inclusion of apple slices on your diner or restaurant menu.
You can at least count on the Vermonter including apples because its creator, a man named Jason Maroney, wanted to promote a Vermont product that was not well-represented in the state's cuisine. A slightly tart apple such as a Granny Smith is popular, and the slices can even be cooked before joining the sandwich.
