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.
