This combination is inspired by the Cape Codder (cranberries) and a classicNew England fall activity (apple picking). The tartness from the apples and sweetness from the apples pair well with the sharp cheddar.

If you can find the cranberry bread, it's worth buying. It adds to this flavor packed sandwich. We loved the sharpness of the cheese and the slight crunchiness of the apples. This is a great, quick lunch idea! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make New England Style Grilled Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice cheese and apples into thin slices.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread.

    Note: if you are unable to find white bread with cranberries, any bread will do; to keep with the New England theme you can simply add a few cranberries into the sandwich with the cheese and apples.
  3. Heat griddle or skillet to medium heat.
  4. Place one piece of bread (butter side down) on hot griddle, carefully layer cheese and apples and then top with another piece of bread. Make sure that cheese is touching both pieces of bread, otherwise sandwich will not stay together.
  5. When bottom side is browned, carefully flip sandwich to other side. Cook until both sides are browned and cheese is melted.
  6. Serve immediately.
