Apple & Honey Grilled Cheese

My grown-up version of a classic sammie from my childhood.  I add a little honey and apple slices to give some oomph.  Perfect for a luncheon, afternoon snack or even cut up and served as an appetizer.  Serves 2.

What you need:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 slices of Maple Oatie Bread
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar or Deglae cheese
  • 1 apple, cored & sliced
  • Honey, for drizzling
  • Salt & Pepper

Heat a large iron skillet over medium or medium-low heat and allow the pan to heat up for a couple of minutes.  Lay out your bread slices and spread one side of each piece of bread with butter.

Place 2 slices of bread, butter side down, into the pan.  Divide the cheese evenly between the 2 slices of bread.  Arrange slices of apple on top of the cheese for each bread slice and drizzle a bit of honey over both.  Add a dash of salt & pepper.  I love a cheesy grilled cheese so I would add a smidge more grated cheese over the apple slices before placing the other slices of bread, butter side up, to complete each sandwich.

Cook for about 5 minutes.  Then press each sandwich down a bit to flatten and then flip each.

Cook until the cheese is fully melted & bubbly and the bread is golden brown.  Remove from the pan.  Cut each sandwich in half and serve immediately. 

Optional, if you have fresh herbs, like thyme, feel free to add them when placing the apples on the bread slices.
