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.

Notes

We like to use cheddar and parmesan cheese, but brie would be delicious, too. We'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.
