Stir-Up Supper with Jenn Hobby - a daily dinner idea!
Apple Cheddar Grilled Cheese
Recipe from Foodess.com (a mouth-watering food blog with amazing photography!) and Real-Life Notes from Jenn Hobby
2 slices rustic bread
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1½ ounces (45 grams) aged cheddar cheese, sliced thinly or grated (Note 1)
¼ apple, cored and thinly sliced (Note 2)
thin slices red onion
1 tbsp butter
Preheat a skillet over medium heat.
Lay bread slices flat on work surface. Spread mayonnaise on one slice, and arrange cheese on the other. Arrange apple and red onion slices on top of cheese, then top with with arugula and sandwich bread slices together.
Spread half of the butter on the upward-facing side of the sandwich, then flip that side down into the pan. Butter the other side.
Cook, flipping once, until bread is golden and cheese is completely melted.
If sandwich is getting dark too quickly, reduce heat. (Note 4)
1. Other cheese ideas I've tried include Brie, Swiss or Colby.
2. Try with any type of apple! My favorite are thinly sliced green apples or crispy, juicy pink ladies.
3. If I were giving in to my current pregnancy cravings, I would add crispy bacon! But it is Monday, so go Meatless!
4. I always start with very low heat for grilled cheeses. It takes some self-restraint, but worth the wait to let the cheese melt more slowly.
Enjoy! With love, Jenn
