Pulled bbq pork...good...apple pie...good...grilled cheese...good...put them all together - a little slice of heaven. Sweet and smoky pulled pork with spiced baked apples and sharp white cheddar cheese grilled to perfection. This idea came about by trying to come up with a new way to enjoy leftover pulled pork barbeque and it turned out great!

This sandwich has so much flavor that you cannot wait for the next bite! The sweet & savory flavors really have a great balance. This is definitely not your regular grilled cheese!
