Servings: 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 slices cheddar (or 1/2 cup shredded)
  • 1/2 apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon caramel sauce
  • 2 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces and cooked (optional)
  1. Heat a pan over medium heat.
  2. Butter the outside side of each slice of bread, place one slice in the pan buttered side down, top with half of the cheese, the apple, caramel sauce, bacon, the remaining cheese and finally the other slice of bread.
  3. Grill until golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.

Option: If you prefer the apples to be tender, and they stay in the sandwich better that way, saute them in a touch of oil or bacon grease until just tender, about 1-2 minutes per side, before adding them to the sandwich.

Option: serve with extra caramel sauce for dipping along with a few apple slices.
