My childhood best friend's mom introduced me to this YEARS back... this was one of our favorite after-school snacks! However, this version was lacking flavor in some ways. First, granny smith apples are too tart for this, in my taste. I usually use Fuji or Gala apples. Instead of making it a "sandwich", I take and toast each slice of bread. After toasting, spread a layer of mayo over each slice of bread, top with apples, then cover apples with sliced cheese (I always use Colby jack or cheddar... but swiss works well, too!). Place both slices on baking sheet & broil until cheese has melted. From there, you can either place slices together to create a sandwich, or simply eat each slice on it's own.
Great, easy recipe... but definitely needs some sort of condiment!! (I found this version quite 'dry' and too plain in some ways.)I did not like the olive oil, when I tried this version. Maybe some butter would be better... but I really prefer the version I grew up with, using mayo & toasting/broiling instead of treating it like a grilled cheese.
