I love a good sandwich. Perfectly grilled bread with a delicious combination of ingredients be it meats, cheeses, grilled veggies, or fruit, a sandwich on a Saturday afternoon is without a doubt one of the small joys of life.
This sandwich is one of our favorites. It is quick, easy, and feels a little special with the combination of good bread, fresh apple slices and delicious jam. Our personal favorite is fig jam, but the other combinations are equally good. Pair it with a tomato or butternut squash soup and you’ve got the perfect winter lunch.
Apple Cheddar Grilled Cheese
Adapted from various recipes and inspired by my friend Meredith.
Good cheddar cheese, such as Dubliner, thinly sliced
Tart Apple, such as Granny Smith, thinly sliced
Fig, Raspberry, or Pepper Jam
Lay your pieces of bread out on your cutting board. On one half of each sandwich, cover the bread with pieces of cheddar cheese. Then cover the cheese with thin slices of apple. Spread your choice of jam on the other half of each piece of bread.
Put the two halves of your sandwich together and butter the outside of your sandwich (both sides).
Place the sandwich on a heated griddle and grill until it is the desired brownness. Flip the sandwich and again grill to your desired brownness.
Cut in half and serve.
