A delicious twist on a the classic grilled cheese! Using your favorite apple, tangy mustard and jam, with bacon as a bonus, this sandwich is the ultimate way to jazz up your traditional dish! 


  • 8 slices bread (sourdough preferred)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fig or apple jam
  • 8 slices sharp cheddar cheese, enough for two layers on four sandwiches
  • 2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 8 slices thin bacon, cooked (optional)


Butter each slice of bread on one side. Combine mustard and jam. Spread on non-buttered sides of four slices of bread. Top mustard spread with layer of cheese, apple slices, bacon and second layer of cheese. Cover with second slice of bread, making sure buttered sides are facing out. Grill sandwiches in preheated skillet (medium heat) or on griddle for about 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown and cheese has melted. Slice and serve while warm.
