Super grilled cheese

Sandwiches are one of my favorite things to eat for lunch (or breakfast, or dinner, or a snack....).
Grilled cheese is classic and comforting. Sometimes, the straight up, loaded with cheddar grilled cheese is what hits the spot. More often, it's fun to experiment with add-ins, and this is my latest favorite. Treat yourself to one of these for an energy packed lunch during the last hectic week leading up to Christmas. I'm figuring that the presence of a fruit and a vegetable cancels out the bacon and cheese, right?
Grilled Apple Cheddar Bacon Sammich

for each sandwich:
2 slices whole grain bread
3 slices cooked bacon
1/4 apple, thinly sliced
sliced cheddar cheese
some fresh spinach leaves
1 T brown mustard
butter for bread

-butter one side of each slice of bread
-place one piece in pan, buttered side down, and spread the mustard on the other side
-layer with apple, bacon, spinach and cheddar
-top with other slice of bread
-grill on medium low heat until bread is nicely toasted and cheese is melty
Now you'll have plenty of spunk for finishing your shopping and baking cookies!


  1. Yummy! I am going to have to make that for dinner very soon!! Thanks for sharing!


  2. Just a warning Trisha..totally addicting.
    It's what I want for lunch every day now.

  3. It's a good thing I don't live closer to you. I'd be knocking at your door every Friday afternoon for one of these and some pie. :)

  4. That sounds like a delightful Friday afternoon:) My neighbors do reap the rewards of PIE DAY!
