Caramelized Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I found this recipe online.

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 dash of cinnamon (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and sliced (for 1 sandwich, this should be a small-ish apple. I’ve used larger apples and had enough to make 2 sandwiches)
  • 2 thick slices of good cheddar cheese (I am assuming that this is like Kraft cheese singles, but I just cut enough cheddar to fill one slice of bread)
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter

1. Melt the butter in a small pot. 

2. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and cook until bubbly.

3. Add apples and sauté until tender, 5 min.

4. Spoon the apples into the bread and assemble sandwich.

5. In a small pan, melt the butter. Grill sandwich on both sides until golden, about 2-4 min per side.

Verdict: This is my third time making this recipe. I screwed up the first time, burning one side of the sandwich and undercooking the other, but I have been better the other times. I love this recipe. The combination of apple and cheddar was not one I had imagined, even though you see apple pie recipes with cheddar cheese, but the taste just worked. It’s the right amount of sweet and savoury.
