Grilled Caramel Apple Cheese Sandwich

Jessica over at How Sweet It Is posts some fabulous food. Her idea for a grilled caramel apple cheese sandwich is just one of them. The combination of the crisp apple, sweet caramel and creamy cheese is to die for.Grilled Caramel Apple Cheese SandwichA good (read: expensive) caramel will take this sandwich over the top. You will still enjoy it with a less costly alternative. Just don’t use something overly sweet and candyish. This grilled caramel apple cheese sandwich is somewhere between dessert and lunch.

The Griddler is a champ at making grilled cheese sandwiches, like my spicy grilled cheese, muffuletta grilled cheese, grilled spinach and artichoke cheese, and pepperoni pizza grilled cheese.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices multigrain bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 4 ounces brie cheese sliced thin (or more, depending on the size of your bread slices)
  • 1 honey crisp apple thinly sliced (a mandolin works best)
  • 3 tablespoons caramel sauce

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Spread the butter on one side of two slices of the bread and place them, butter-side down, into the skillet.
  • As the bread cooks, drizzle each with a 1/2 tablespoon of caramel. Divide half of the brie between the two bread slices, add another 1/2 tablespoon of caramel, the apple, the remaining caramel and finally the rest of the cheese.
  • Butter one side of the remaining bread slices and place on top.
  • Flip sandwich once the bottom slices are well browned.
  • Continue cooking until the bread is browned and crispy and the cheese has melted. You might find that the cheese melts better if you put a lid over the skillet while cooking.
