Recipe by ALSHEJU
"This recipe is made just like a grilled cheese, except with applesauce. The applesauce kind of soaks into the bread as it cooks. This is a great snack that my Mom used to make for me as a child. My children love this as a 'late night' snack."

I made this recipe paired with the peanut butter/banana grilled sandwich.
I actually did cinnamon applesauce on one side and Adams crunchy peanut butter on the other side, then cooked it in a buttered pan. The kids LOVED it. I will make it again.
Unfortunately I was not impressed with recipe. It reminded me with toast with apple butter spread on it. I thought it could have had more flavor...maybe a sprinkling of cinnamon or something.
I used to eat these as a kid but with a little difference in the recipe. I use cream cheese on one piece of honey wheat bread and then add the applesauce. After lightly grilling, I sprinkle with cinnamon...makes it like an apple turnover...
This was SO tasty...and not so unhealthy (and a WINNER of a bedtime snack). I added a bit of cinnamon to the applesauce...it was sort of apple pie like.
I can't believe it, my 2-year-old ate a WHOLE sandwich!!! She's so picky, but she thought this was GREAT! I think it would be best to use a pretty sweet applesauce rather than unsweetened. I also think this recipe would be great with ripe bananas or whole fruit preserves. One note, you have to serve the sandwiches immediately, as they get soggy pretty fast.
I always used to make these for my lunches and they turned out fine, if they could make my lunch bag first. I started to make them because I could no longer have certain foods and was tired of sandwiches. These are awesome. They only get soggy when you use different types of bread that are flimsy. I use frozen spelt bread and it doesn't get soggy. Also try it with spice bread or Applesauce Bread to give it a nice kick.
I enjoyed it, with cinnamon/sugar mix sprinkled on top.
Instead of apple sauce I use apple pie filling.I made these for a bridal shower brunch and cut each sandwich into 4 triangles. I arranged them all on a plate and dusted them with powdered sugar. They were a hit! Nice and simple to make without alot of fuss or clean-up.
