Apple Gruyere Grilled Cheese

The perfect grilled cheese for fall, with gooey Gruyere, crispy apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Ingredients

1
small apple, cored and sliced thin
2
tablespoons unsalted butter
6
ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
1
teaspoon cinnamon
4
slices sandwich bread

Directions

  • 1 Core your apple, halve it, and slice it into thin slices.
  • 2 Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Then add a slice of bread and let it soak up some of the butter. Add half of the cheese to the bread, followed by a row of apple slices. Sprinkle the apples generously with cinnamon and top with a second piece of bread.
  • 3 Let the sandwich cook on that side for 2-3 minutes and then carefully flip the sandwich. Rotate the sandwich a bit so the melted butter in the skillet soaks into the second bread slice. Let the sandwich cook for another 2-3 minutes on the second side.
  • 4 Continue to cook the grilled cheese, flipping every 30-45 seconds until the cheese is well melted and sandwich is browned on the outside. Repeat with second sandwich (or make two at the same time if your skillet is big enough.)

Step By Step  

A grilled cheese sandwich made just for fall, with thinly sliced apples, cinnamon and Gruyere cheese.

As prepared by Macheesmo,

You might have had a grilled cheese before, but you've probably never had one like this!

There are lots of reasons why I think fall is the best season. The weather is temperate and the colors are beautiful. But I mostly love fall because of the plentiful vegetables and fruits.

This sandwich just makes sense for the start of fall. Not only should you be able to find nice apples everywhere right now, the gooey Gruyere and cinnamon in the sandwich just round out the fall flavors.

There’s nothing hard about this grilled cheese, and the ingredients are simple enough – which makes it even better. The only thing I’ll say is that while Gruyere is an expensive cheese, it completely makes the sandwich, so do try to hunt it down. In a pinch, you could substitute Swiss cheese though.

This sandwich cooks fast, so make sure to prep all your ingredients before you start cooking. Core your apple and cut it in half. Then slice it into thin slices. Grate your cheese so it melts faster in the sandwich.

The key to making a good grilled cheese is temperature control. Start your skillet over medium-low heat and melt about 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter for one sandwich. Add a slice of bread and let it soak up some of the melted butter. Then top it with cheese, apple slices, and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon.

Top the sandwich with the second piece of bread and let it cook for 2-3 minutes per side. For the second side, after you flip it, move the sandwich around a bit in the pan so the dry piece of bread can soak up some of the extra butter. Butter, after all, is delicious.

After about 5-6 minutes total, the sandwich should be nicely browned and the cheese melted.

Tips  

If your cheese isn't melting and your sandwich is burning, you can quickly melt the cheese by adding a drizzle of water to the pan and covering it with a lid or bowl to steam the sandwich for a few seconds.
