Apple and Bacon Grilled Cheese

Recipe by  

"This unlikely combination is delicious with fresh fall apples. This recipe requires high quality ingredients. I recommend a Vermont aged Cheddar cheese and Honeycrisp apples. Your favorite apple would work too!"

Can I give this more than 5 stars?! We loved this! I used this recipe for Johnsonville-s 6 Ingredient or Less challenge. I used a rustic boule of whole wheat bread and replaced the bacon with crumbled sausage meat. I also served it with the Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce from this site. So good! The flavors are perfect! If you don't have a panini press, just heat a skillet on medium and when it's hot, put your sandwich down with another, smaller pan on top of it to press it down. Then, just put a heavy can on it to hold it. Flip the sandwich after 2-3 minutes (after it's toasted nicely).

OMG! I love apples and bacon and placing it between two slices of lightly grilled bread with melted cheese...delicious! This is a nice twist on traditional grilled cheese and it was a perfect combination of sweet and salty. I used thick sliced whole grain bread, but whatever bread you use this is bound to be delicious. This is definitely a case of don't knock it 'til ya try it!

I thought this was an unusual combo but thought it was worth a try. I LOVE THIS!! Easy to make too. I think this might be good as an open face sandwich for a ladies lunch. Thank you for this!
