I make grilled cheese sandwiches all the time. My kids love them. The daycare kids love them. So it is pretty much a staple meal around here.
I don't eat them too often. While they are delicious, I would rather save my bread and cheese for something more better.
This sandwich is the exception. The simple addition of apple turns it into something completely different. I sometimes will add just a bit of mustard but usually like to keep it just like this. Apples and cheese.
I sometimes will vary the cheese but almost always use Fuji apples. They are my favorite.
We ate our sandwiches with a most delicious butternut squash soup. A very satisfying meal!
Grilled Apple & Cheddar Sandwich Recipe
6 pieces of bread (mine was 55 calories a slice)
3 slices cheddar cheese (1 oz. a piece)
1 apple (I used fugi), sliced into thin slices
6 tsp. butter
Butter each slice of bread with a teaspoon of butter. Place butter side down on hot pan, top with 1 slice of cheese and layer with 1/3 of the apples. Place bread on top, butter side up. Cook until browned, flip and brown on the other side.
