How to make a grilled cheese and apple sandwich

  1. Start by mixing together some room-temperature butter with sriracha. You can use your favorite spicy sauce, but we love the flavor of sriracha in this recipe.
  2. Now butter the outside of your bread slices with plain butter and the insides with the sriracha butter you just made.
  3. Pile it high with your fav cheese (more on that in a moment) and sliced apples and fry your grilled cheese in a pan until it's crispy and the cheese is melted.
  4. Now dig in!

What kind of cheese is best for grilled cheese?

We're big fans of aged cheddar cheese but also like to grate a little parmesan on top for extra flavor.

Brie is amazing as it melts really well.

Most melty cheeses will work great in this recipe. Havarti, jack, gruyere, and gouda are others we really like.

Description

This grilled cheese and apple sandwich is rich and cheesy with a little crunch and a touch of spice. The sriracha butter adds just the right amount of heat to take this classic sandwich up a level.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoons softened butter, plus more to butter the bread
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • Optional: 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of chili flakes
  • 4 slices of bread
  • Cheese (see notes)
  • ½ an apple, cored and sliced

Instructions

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of the butter with the sriracha and, if using, the chili flakes in a small bowl.
  2. Butter one slice of bread with plain butter then turn the bread over and butter the other side with the Sriracha butter. Add the cheese, apple slices, and more cheese. Top with the other piece of bread then butter the top.
  3. Heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat. Add the sandwich and cover the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the cheese has melted, and the bread is brown and crispy.
  4. Enjoy!

Notes

I like to use cheddar and parmesan cheese, but I think brie would be delicious, too. I've left the quantity of the cheese out on purpose. Add more or less depending on how cheesy you'd like your grilled cheese sandwich to be.
