Everyone loves a classic grilled cheese, but did you know that cheese and apples are best friends?
Adding apple to your grilled cheese adds a sweeter taste to your pallet. However, we turned it up a notch by adding Dijon mustard to the recipe. If you've cooked with Dijon before, you can understand how it adds a bit of a kick and enhances the flavour of the entire meal.
Goat Cheese In The Recipe
8 slices of fresh sourdough bread
1 Apple, thinly sliced
1 brick of Great Lakes Goat Dairy Mild Cheddar Goat Cheese
(or for a little more zing, use Aged Cheddar Goat Cheese)
Butter or Margarine for spreading on the bread
Heat a griddle to 400°F.
Cut the entire brick of cheese into thin slices. (a Dutch cheese slicer works best)
Spread the butter or margarine on all the pieces of bread. Make sure you get all the corners!
When the griddle is hot, place 4 slices of the bread, butter side down on the griddle.
Evenly place the sliced cheese on the bread. Place the thinly sliced apple on top of the cheese. Squeeze the dijon on top of the apple. Cover with the other slices of bread, butter side up.
Let grill for about 5 minutes, use your flipper to lift the bread once in a while to check underneath to make sure it isn’t burning. When nicely toasted on the bottom, and the cheese has started to melt, carefully flip the sandwich to toast the other side.
Grill for another 5 minutes, or until bottom bread has browned nicely. Put on a plate, cut in half, and enjoy! Careful, it will be hot!
