My Grilled Cheese with Apples and Bacon

Norma DeRemer


Well it looks like the heat is not going away for a while here in PA. I didn't feel like heating up the kitchen so I thought I'd make grilled cheese sandwich. Had a few strips of bacon and one apple left along with a small bag of cheddar cheese. So I thought why not try something new. I thought it was a curious combination of sweet apple, smoky bacon and sharp cheese. So I put it together and tried it. WOW! It really was good. So I thought I'd share this to make enough for four. Oops! Forgot to take a picture. Will take one next time I make this for sure. I thought this was so good I made another one and took a picture this time.

2 Tbsp
8 slice
whole-grain bread
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
6 oz
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
strips of cooked bacon in your microwave (can pan fry if you wish)
granny smith apple, cored and sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat the butter in a large skillet or nonstick pan over low heat.
Take four slices of bread and spread with mustard.
Then divide the cheese, sliced apple, and bacon among them. (I cooked my bacon crisp in my microwave oven)
Top with the other bread slices and add to hot pan.
Cook these sandwiches slowly about 10 to 12 minutes until each side in deep brown and crunchy
* I'm thinking that maybe next time I'll add swiss cheese slices and caramelized onions. Maybe would taste like French onion soup on bread.
