Spicy Apple Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 Sandwiches (easily doubled!)

Spicy jelly, extra sharp cheddar, sweet apples, and cinnamon honey butter, all melted together with a little fresh arugula on thick crusty bread, makes the most flavor bomb grilled cheese you will ever try!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices thick, Italian bread (I used a crusty Tuscan loaf from the bakery, and sliced it myself)
  • 4 Tablespoons cinnamon honey butter (I used store bought, but you can use homemade as well)
  • 1 large apple, sliced thin
  • 4-6 ounces extra sharp white cheddar
  • 4 Tablespoons Hot Pepper Jelly (or store bought spicy jelly!)
  • 1 cup fresh arugula

Directions

  1. Heat a griddle to 350° or a skillet to medium-high heat.
  2. Smear the cinnamon honey butter on both sides of all four slices of bread. Place the bread on the heated griddle. Toast until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Careful not to burn it!
  3. Flip the bread. Reduce the heat slightly to about 250° or medium-low.
  4. On two of the slices, top with the cheddar cheese and apple slices. Drop spoonful's of the hot jelly across the top. Cover with a large cover, careful not to smush your sandwich, just enough to melt the cheese well, for 3-4 minutes, depending how thick your cheese slices are.
  5. Top with arugula, it will stick to the jelly, place the other two slices on top, serve, and devour!
