He said, “this Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese is the best GIRLY food you have ever made.”

My oldest son, Casey, always begs me to fix him some bacon.  One of my favorite sandwiches is my Ham & Apple Grilled Cheese.  So,  I made my Ham & Apple Grilled Cheese with bacon instead of the ham to surprise Casey.  He loved it.  My bacon-eating son has always been super active in many sports.  Casey can afford to eat some bacon every once in a while.   He gave me the highest compliment after eating both the Ham & Apple Grilled Cheese and this Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese.   He said, “this is the best GIRLY food you have ever made.” Coming from my meat and potatoes man, this was a huge compliment.

Sweet & Spicy Mustard

As for me, I honestly love both of these sandwiches.  I used peppered bacon on this Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese, which went well with the sweetness of the apples and sweet, spicy honey mustard.   I used an Apple Butter in the Hot Ham & Apple Sandwich, which was terrific, but I did not have any more apple butter.  Instead, I decided to take my oldest daughter’s creation.  Her creation is spicy-sweet honey mustard, which was a fantastic combination with the fresh apples and salty bacon.

Crock-Pot Apple Butter

I have a recipe for Crock-Pot Apple Butter.  Using a Crock-pot is the easiest way to prepare apple butter. You can grill this sandwich in a pan on the stove.  I had several Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese sandwiches to make, so I decided to bake them in the oven.  The apple was cooked perfectly, and the cheese was ooey-gooey.

Oven-Fried Bacon

The first time I tried to fix bacon in the oven, I was afraid grease would spatter and catch the oven on fire.  I have since prepared bacon many, many, many times in the oven, and have always had a great experience.  I am convinced the oven is the best and easiest way to prepare bacon, which is why commercial kitchens make bacon in the oven.  It is the easiest way to cook bacon. See my Oven-Fried Bacon recipe.

Easy Steps: To Making This Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese

  • Prepare the best Sweet Spicy Honey mustard recipe.
  • Spread the sweet, spicy honey mustard on one side of both pieces of the bread.
  • Add a piece of cheese on top of the spicy honey mustard.
  • Top the cheese with 2 to 4 slices of apple.
  • Add two pieces of cooked bacon on top of the apple slices.
  • Place a piece of cheese on top of the bacon.
  • Add the second piece of bread on top of the apples, bacon, and cheese.
  • Butter the bread and place it in a medium-hot skillet until golden brown.
  • Butter the top side and flip the sandwich over.
  • Remove from the skillet when golden brown.

Tip:

Add a tablespoon of water beside the Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese and place a lid on the skillet. The cover with a little water will add steam. The steam will help melt the cheese and make the grilled cheese extremely gooey.

Try the following apple and cheese combinations.

  • Red Delicious apples are delicious with cheddar or provolone cheese.
  • Fuji with Havarti cheese.  Havarti melts perfectly on a grilled cheese sandwich.
  • Gala apples are fabulous with cheddar, swiss, or even goat cheese.
  • Honeycrisp, go well with brie, provolone or gruyere cheese.
  • Try Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples with Gorgonzola.
  • Golden Delicious apple pair with Brie or Gruyere.
