Grilled cheese just might be my favorite sandwich. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s very important that the bread is crispy and the cheese is melty. (Spellcheck doesn’t like the word “melty”, but you know what I mean!)
This fall, I’ve gotten into a kick of making grilled cheese sandwiches with Cabot 75% Reduced Fat Cheddar and fresh slices of apple on whole wheat bread. Cheese and apples are always a great combination, and this makes for an awesome sandwich on a chilly day.
OK, so this isn’t a real recipe, but I do have some important tips. First, cut the apples slices very thin so they’ll soften slightly as the sandwich cooks. Second, make sure to place half of the cheese slices under the apples, and half of them on top. This will ensure that the cheese melts onto both sides of the bread with the apple slices in between. And finally, serve any remaining apple slices on the side of the sandwich.
I was not paid by Cabot to mention their cheese, and the cheese was not provided to me as a sample. But I do love the fact that Cabot reduced fat cheeses have a great texture, and really melt when you make a sandwich!
