Harvest Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich #AppleWeek

The best Fall flavors are combined into one sweet and savory sandwich - Harvest Apple Grilled Cheese! Cheddar, apples and bacon are sandwiched between 15-grain bread for a hearty Autumn dish.

Many years ago, Mr. L&C and I shared a Harvest Apple Sandwich from one of the local food trucks, and it was amazing! Sadly that truck is no longer in operation, so I decided to try and recreate the bacon, cheddar, apple grilled cheese goodness on my own. While it may not be exactly how we remembered, this grilled cheese is a delicious Autumn treat!

I have always loved a sweet and salty combination - the best of both worlds. When building the sandwich, apple butter is spread on the inside of a slice, then topped with bacon, cheddar, apples and more cheddar, then cooked and drizzled with honey. The honey is totally optional, but I love that added touch.

Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy all combine to create the perfect Fall sandwich. I bet you could even add some caramelized onions for a great flavor combination. You can also choose the sweetness of apples - Honeycrisp, or similar, if you want a sweeter apple; Granny Smith if you want that crisp, tart bite. Either way, they are both delicious.

Make sure you have a good cheddar! None of that individual plastic-wrapped cheese please. go to your deli counter and get the best cheddar you can, or head to the refrigerated section and pick up a brick and slice your own.

When it comes to cooking, I am thoroughly impressed with this Swiss Diamond Cookware Double-Burner Griddle. I can cook multiple grilled cheese sandwiches at the same time, and it makes breakfast a breeze with the surface area for pancakes and French toast! Head to the Swiss Diamond Facebook page for more recipe information.
