Grilled cheese with Ezekiel bread, cheddar cheese, apples and walnuts

What do you get when you take sweet apples, crunchy walnuts and tangy, creamy cheddar cheese? Over here we call this Apple Pie Grilled Cheese. This sweet-savory sandwich is a healthy nod to honor National Grilled Cheese Month. I am grateful that Kerrygold sent me a timely package of fine cheese and butter to explore. It has been a fun journey tasting all of their rich and fabulous cheese and butter.

Grated white and yellow cheddar cheese for grilled cheese recipe.

I like this grilled cheese open faced, that way I can really taste all the flavors. I smear some butter on my go-to sprouted grain bread, sprinkle on crunchy walnuts, cinnamon and my favorite cheese. I love tangy sharp flavors so Kerrygold’s Red Leicester was my first pick. Another favorite is the Aged Cheddar. Honestly though, I love them all!

Golden apples, Honey Crisp and Granny Smith at the farmers market.

Our local farmers market had a delightful selection of juicy apples that inspired me to create this recipe. I also made a giant pot of our favorite applesauce.

Add a drizzle of honey if you want a little more sweetness. Have fun with grilled cheese. It is a method more than a carefully measured recipe. I love coming up with unique creations. Last summer we were addicted to my Grilled Cheese Bruschetta and Strawberry Mozzarella Stuffed French Toast (which is one of my Egg Battered Grilled Cheese creations.)

You can also make this grilled cheese with two slices of bread. Adjust your ingredients according to taste and caloric preference. Obviously you can add gobs of cheese, but I like to stick to one ounce portions of cheese per serving.

If only all food producers felt the same passion as Kerrygold towards quality.

I LOVE their mission statement “There’s not much point in taking the purest rain, the most natural green grass on earth, herds of contented cows, and centuries of long-standing family traditions and messing it all up by mixing in preservatives, hormones and unnatural additives into the process.” That’s right folks. Kerrygold has high standards and it shows in their butters and cheese.

Apple Pie Grilled Cheese

Ingredients per sandwich

NOTES:

  • Toasted nuts have so much more flavor. Chop your favorite nuts to the size you like, place on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake at 350˚F until crisp, slightly browned and fragrant, about 8-10 minutes.

INGREDIENTS

OPTIONAL GARNISH

  • fresh apple Slices
  • a sprinkle of ground Cinnamon
  • more Honey, Maple Syrup or Stevia

METHOD

I made this grilled cheese three ways. All were delicious.

Broiled Grilled Cheese: Set oven to a low broil with the rack on bottom 1/3 of the oven. Assemble grilled cheese on a cookie sheet. Take one slice of bread and smear a little butter on it. Press in the nuts, sprinkle on some cinnamon and drizzle honey or stevia on top of that. Top with apples and cheese. Broil about about 8-9 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned, melted and gooey. Watch carefully so it does not burn.

Baked: Pre heat oven to 350˚F with the rack in the middle. Assemble grilled cheese on a cookie sheet like above either open faced or with two pieces of bread. Heat a about 5 minutes each side until cheese is melted and gooey. If you want the top crispy & browned you can broil on low for about one minute, watch carefully so it does not burn.

Stove Top Pan Fry: Put a small pat of butter in a cast iron skillet and heat over medium heat. Assemble grilled cheese: Take one slice of bread and smear a little butter on it. Press in some nuts, sprinkle on some cinnamon and drizzle honey or stevia on top of that. Top with apples, cheese and another piece of bread. Heat on one side until lightly browned, flip and cook until the seocnd side is browned and cheese is melted.

    Wow, would I ever LOVE to win this! Kerrygold is an awesome brand and I did not know they had that many varities, I would probably eat a lot of this plain, maybe with some fruit. The butter screams to be slathered on homemade artisan bread!

    Wow you are so creative! I actually love grilled cheese with sweet jam so I’d definitely use some cheese for that. Also my boyfriend loves to eat cheese and crackers, so much so that we call him “mouse” sometimes. I’d definitely make a lot of casseroles, cheese plates, savory cheese cupcakes, reinvent cheese balls, the works!

    If I win, I will hide the basket of cheese from my family! (If I want to get a turn at it for myself.) We love grilled cheese, cheese soup, quesedillas, Mac & cheese…you name it. I like to keep it simple – a fresh loaf of bread from the farmers market topped with a slice of cheese and some fresh strawberries on the side.

    • Marla
      Posted at 05:27h, 25 April

      Winnie, I also love the crispness of fresh veggies and creamy avocado with grilled cheese. Something about the gooey, rich cheese with those little bright flavored sprouts is wonderful. Come to think of it that will be lunch today!

  • Lara @ six times the yum
    Posted at 05:14h, 25 April

    My favorite traditional grilled cheese is whole wheat bread with lots of swiss cheese and a side of dijon mustard. My favorite non traditional grilled cheese is brie and apples on baguette. I also love mozarella, tomatoes, and basil on ciabatta!

    Posted at 05:34h, 25 April

    I don’t really have a ‘favorite’ grilled cheese recipe, but I do like combining the sweet and savory, like a grilled brie, fig jam, and arugula, or cheddar and apple, like your recipe. Of course, I’m also a sucker for the old, childhood grilled cheese standby, grilled american cheese, in lots of butter, served with tomato soup.

    • Marla
      Posted at 05:49h, 25 April

      Lisa: The brie and fig jam sounds amazing. I have so many dates here I should try something with those too. Really sweet fruit pairs so well with tangy sharp cheese as well as those smooth creamy ones (like brie.) Grilled cheese in lots of butter with tomato soup is the ultimate comfort food!

    You’re grilled cheese looks delicious! These days, I make my grilled cheese sandwiches on gluten-free bread, usually Udi’s. If I add anything other than cheese, it’s usually avocado and sliced tomatoes. Mmm…now I’m thinking a grilled cheese sandwich for breakfast would be good…

    • Marla
      Posted at 06:31h, 25 April

I’ve never had a “different” take on a grilled cheese, besides what everyone grew up with, but I know if I had yours it would be my favorite for sure! Thanks for sharing.

  • Tara
    Posted at 08:33h, 25 April

    With two young boys, we like our grilled cheese old-school style (whole wheat bread and cheddar cheese….lots of butter!). However, my oldest and I do love slicing Granny Smith apples into ours.

    I haven’t thought about this for years, but I used to make mine with sliced pickles. Yes, inside the sandwich!

I have been wanting to try apple + cheese for awhile now, so I’d probably try that, among other things: with crackers, with eggs, on a sandwich, by itself, mac ‘n cheese… oooh I love Kerrygold! YUM 😀

    My favorite grilled cheese recipe is butter, 2 slices crusty bread, and three cheeses: Swiss, cheddar, and provolone. I also like American cheese and just butter/bread with tomato soup on the side. 😉

    I think that I would start with oven-baked mac and cheese. It has been requested by our two teenage sons. Then, potatoes au gratin was the next request. Then, I am out there to make things up.

    Wow, that looks sooo yummy! I have never had any of Kerrygold’s butter or cheese, and I am DYING to try them! I would love to use the cheese in homemade macaroni & cheese, cheese and apple slices (snack), grilled cheese (of course), ooh and grated over top of your bison chili (which I’m addicted to)!

    Thank you for the great giveaway, Marla!

    Irish cheese is almost too good to put in casseroles; I think a lot of fruit and cheese plates would be in order if I win this. Kerrygold butter is the best in baking; I love to use it when I make shortbread.

  • Sunny Hernandez
    Posted at 09:47h, 25 April

    What would I do with this cheese? Put it in pie crust, on top of pies, inside of pies! Not to mention some serious grilled cheese and quesadilla (Mexican grilled cheese) action. I am thinking something with brown sugar, apple and smoked meat…mmmm.

    Red Leicester is one of my absolute fave cheeses!

    I love making grilled cheese for my son (and myself!). I add all kinds of healthy ingredients like spinach, hummus, sprouts, herbs, tomatoes.

My personal favorite is aged cheddar with sweet potato hummus on Tuscan wheat. I’m getting hungry!

    OMG I LOVE Kerrygold cheese! My favorte is the aged cheddar! I would make a sharp adult version mac and cheese!

    • Marla

      Kim: Funny how those sharp cheeses are best suited to adult palates. My kids prefer the creamy tastes over the tangy aged ones. I love ’em all!

    My favorite grill cheese is an inside out grill cheese. Aged cheddar inside wheat bread and more aged cheddar on the outside grilled with a little buttah! mmmm!…Will try apple pie grill cheese, looks awesome!

    A good deal of that cheese would be eaten by my 2 1/2 year old cheese-monster daughter. 🙂

    • Marla

      Cellabella: Mozzarella, tomato and basil is always a favorite combo over here too. Reminds me of my Grilled Cheese Bruschetta recipe. Instead of the brioche I go with sprouted grain bread- but the your choice sounds sooooo good.

    Now that is what I call a grilled cheese sandwich; it looks healthy and incredibly delicious. Oh all of the things I could do with that wonderful cheese! I would definitely have to make some kind of creamy, cheesy sauce for a chicken dish. My favorite grilled cheese would be a grilled roasted turkey and cheddar on whole wheat sandwich:)

  • merry jennifer

    What will I do with all that cheese? Eat it! After all, cheese is one thing not off limits to diabetics. But I am sure I’d come up with some other great uses for it to, and maybe I’d have a big party for my friends. Ooo, yeah, that’s it, I’d have a big backyard wine and cheese party!

    My favorite grilled cheese at the moment is havarti and avocado on whole grain bread with a tiny bit of cream cheese on one slice of bread and a tiny bit of apricot preserves on the other. Kind of an unusual blend of flavors but it just WORKS. So delicious.

  • Damaris @Kitchen Corners

    I love apples with cheese and I love apple pies and grilled cheese sandwiches. This is such a genius idea. I think I am going to try and use Asian pears in my grilled cheese sandwich.

    Posted at 05:09h, 09 May

    This has absolutely blown my mind. Cheese and apples? Phwoar! Actually, I’ve occasionally received fresh pear on cheese plates at restaurants, and there’s always crackers involved to, so perhaps this isn’t as mind-boggling as I first thought… nope, it is. It’s super inventive, and I’d like one now… 😀

    • Marla
      Posted at 06:25h, 09 May

      Hannah, it is the heat applied that puts this grilled cheese over the top. You are right, a very similar concept to those sweet/savory cheese platters. Now if we could just torch the cheese, apple and pear together in to a melty mess onto those crackers….ahhhh heaven 😉 Thanks for stopping by.
