Sometimes a lunch classic can be adapted with a simple ingredient. That’s just what we did with Cheddar Grilled Cheese with Apple. You’ll enjoy the gooey goodness of melted cheese, and the outstanding crispness of apple. A perfect combination.

This is a wonderful sandwich that's totally delicious!
Recipe type: Sandwiches
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 Granny Smith or other crisp, tart apple, cored, not skinned, sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 4 slices whole wheat or country white bread
  • 4 slices sharp cheddar, or 1 Cup shredded, divided
  1. Butter one side of the bread and reserve.
  2. Heat a frying pan (non-stick is best) over medium heat and place two slices of bread, buttered side down.
  3. Layer one slice of cheddar, several apple slices and another slice of cheddar, then top with the remaining slices of bread, buttered-side up.
  4. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn over carefully, and cook for another two minutes or until the bread is browned and crusty. Use a spatula to gently press down, cook one more minute and move to the cutting board. Slice the sandwiches in half, diagonally, and serve.
If you don't like Cheddar, try this with Swiss, Gruyere or American, or even Brie! It's also fantastic with a slice of ham, or pre-cooked bacon.
