This grilled cheese recipe, is a twist on the classic and just might be the BEST grilled cheese sandwich ever.
Mind you, that’s only my opinion, but do tend to be right every now and again. *wink*
Did you know April was National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month? Obviously, we Americans love our comfort food.
It’s hard to resist a really good grilled cheese recipe. Probably because it reminds us of childhood, offers the comfort of a warm blanket, and makes the world seem honest and pure… if only for a moment.
This grilled cheese recipe starts out with the classic white bread and American cheese combo. Then I added fresh, zesty, homemade pimento cheese and a thin slice of perky Granny Smith Apple. Mmmmm.
As the buttered bread is grilling, the pimento cheese melts, releasing it’s flavors, and the apple slice warms and softens. This creates three layers of creamy, tangy, gooey goodness between perfectly toasted slices of bread.
I used Udi’s Gluten Free Bread and Horizon Organic American Cheese Slices for this sandwich in honor of this month’s Grilled Cheese Recipe Challenge.
