Bacon, Apple and Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Ok, so your probably wondering why I'm blogging about a grilled cheese sandwich, but I have to say, this is not your ordinary grilled cheese!  My sister made this sandwich for me a while back and I instantly fell in love with it.  Honestly, I think I could eat a couple of these easily!  I made them with the Tomato Soup the other night and my son told me "Mommy, this is the best day of my life!"  I love that my kids will try new things like this sandwich.  It makes my life a lot easier at times!  Oh, and our weather here on the central coast is so wacky, that last week (when I made the soup and grilled cheese) it was pouring rain and cold, this week it's HOT!  Kind of kills that Fall weather mood.

Bacon, Apple and Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwiches {Makes 5 sandwiches}


  • Sliced Sourdough Bread {I love to use San Luis Sourdough Deli Bread}
  • 10 slices of thick cut bacon
  • 1 large green apple, thinly sliced {I used granny smith}
  • sharp cheddar cheese, sliced thick {I used Tillamook Sharp Cheddar}
  • butter 
  Cook Bacon until crispy, drain on paper towels and set aside.  Slice apple and cheese.  Heat griddle to medium heat.  Butter the bottom of one slice of bread.  Layer cheese, apple bacon, then a couple more slices of cheddar {this allows the sandwich to stick together}.  Place another slice of bread on top and butter the top.  Make up all of the sandwiches then place two on the griddle at a time.  Heat until golden brown then flip.  Place grilled sandwiches on cutting board, let sit for a couple minutes, then slice in half.  Enjoy that cheesy goodness!!!

I put 2 slices of bacon on each sandwich, but by all means, put on more if you like!

I think I'm ready to make these again...NOW!
