  1. Place a skillet over medium heat. Spread butter evenly and completely over one side of each bread slice. Arrange the apple slices on the unbuttered side of one of the bread slices. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the apples. Place the cheese slice atop the apples. Top with the remaining bread slice with the buttered side facing outward. Lie gently into the skillet. Cook sandwich on both sides until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

OMG! I love apples and cheese, but never would have thought of the two in a sandwich! This was a great for lunch. I used whole wheat bread and and a Granny Smith Apple. I also subbed some mild cheddar cheese as I thought it would pair better than American. This is definitely a case of don't knock it 'til ya try it!

Wasn't terrible, but really nothing extrodinary. I love all the individual components (apples & cinn./grilled cheese) but together wasn't a masterpiece. I'd prefer a traditional grilled cheese sandwich with cut up apples on the side for lunch.

Very yummy! I used wheat bread, instead of white, and Tillamook Cheddar cheese rather than American. Totally hit the spot...with some added nutrition! I know what I am putting in my kids lunches tomorrow!

What a surprise! This was really good. We did need to add another slice of cheese to "sandwich" the apple slices inside. I will make this again & again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

My kids thought this was great. I used whole wheat bread, a large organic Granny Smith apple and sharp cheddar cheese. As soon as I served up the sandwiches, I swear they were gone. Then, they wanted two more!

Nice touch to a traditional Grilled Cheese Sandwich... It tasted good but nothing extraordinary.... it was nice change though... will make again if i think of it

I really didn't think this would be good but it was delicious! My only suggestion would be to make the apple slices very thin so they don't fall out as your flipping the sandwhich. Personally..I loved this! Thank you!

I just made this for my mom and she loved it! I think it is just wonderfully tasteful! Wonderful recipe! We will be making it again.
