Grilled Cheese with Sharp Cheddar, Apples and Whole Grain Mustard

So I’ve written about this sandwich before.  But really, it merits a second entry.  It was one of my very first blog posts, and I wasn’t even attempting to take food pictures at that point.  Plus, it’s been nearly a year, and I still look forward to this sandwich.


It’s super simple to make, but incredibly satisfying.  I press it on a Foreman grill, but you could definitely butter the outside and grill it like a more typical grilled cheese.

Simply slice up some of the sharpest cheddar cheese you can find, and half an apple (I always eat the other half with the sandwich).  You want a sweet/tart apple, and lately I’ve been using Honeycrisps.  Layer them both on one slice of bread.


Spread whole grain mustard on the other slice of bread.


And sandwich the whole thing together and grill it until the cheddar is really melty.

Yes, melty is a technical term.

This is the part where I implore you to make this sandwich.  I shouldn’t have to beg really.  Who needs to be begged to eat a grilled cheese?  It’s not life-changing; that would be over selling.  But it’s simple, and comforting, and completely satisfying.  Plus it took me longer to write the blog post then it will take you to make it.

Are you sold? Smile

  4. I had a sandwich just like this on the menu at the wine shop I used to manage. I added turkey though — but made it without turkey for myself! Thanks for the reminder about this awesome combination.
