Cheddar And Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

    Table of Contents


    • 8 slices of your favorite bread (whole wheat, sourdough, or multigrain)
    • 2 medium-sized apples, thinly sliced (Granny Smith or Honeycrisp work well)
    • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • Salt and pepper to taste


    Prepare the Ingredients:

    • Wash and thinly slice the apples.
    • Shred the sharp cheddar cheese.

    Combine Mustard and Honey:

    • In a small bowl, mix the Dijon mustard and honey together. This will be the flavorful spread for your sandwich.

    Assemble the Sandwiches:

    • Lay out 8 slices of bread.
    • On 4 slices, spread the Dijon mustard and honey mixture evenly.

    Add Cheese and Apples:

    • Divide the shredded cheddar cheese equally among the 4 slices with the mustard and honey spread.
    • Place a layer of thinly sliced apples on top of the cheese.

    Season and Top with Bread:

    • Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper over the apples.
    • Top each sandwich with another slice of bread to complete the sandwich.

    Butter the Bread:

    • Spread a thin layer of softened butter on the outer side of each sandwich.

    Grill the Sandwiches:

    • Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat.
    • Carefully place the sandwiches on the hot surface and cook until the bread turns golden brown and the cheese begins to melt, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.


    • Once both sides are golden brown and the cheese is melted, remove the sandwiches from the heat.
    • Allow them to cool for a minute or two before slicing.


    • Serve your Cheddar and Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches warm and enjoy the delicious combination of savory cheddar, sweet apples, and the hint of mustard and honey.

    Feel free to customize the recipe to suit your preferences, such as adding a sprinkle of cinnamon for extra warmth or using different types of bread for variety. Enjoy your tasty grilled cheese creation!
