Grown Up Grilled Cheese

What do you do after a long day when there is no food in the house? Last night was one of those nights for us. Ok so it wasn’t NO food clearly, but slim pickings: kind of like looking in your closet and having nothing to wear! Looking in the fridge, we had some spring pea soup that Mary had made but it wasn’t really jumping out as a meal. The only thing I could think to pair with it was grilled cheese of course! Who doesn’t love grilled cheese and some good soup? Given a few more staples we had lying around, this turned into an exceptional grilled cheese, if a little burnt since we were too hungry to wait patiently. Think cheddar and goat cheeses, onions and apple (yes, apple!) spiced up with a little thyme. Just the right combination to make boring cupboard staples into something great. Try it. It’s awesome.

Grown Up Grilled Cheese

Shredded White Cheddar

Crumbled Goat Cheese

1 Onion Sliced

1 McIntosh Apple Julienned



Olive Oil

Whole Wheat Bread


Heat olive oil in a skillet and add onions to sautee. When onions are soft, add apples and season with a pinch of thyme and fresh ground pepper. Sautee until onions are lightly brown and apples are soft then remove from heat. Heat a skillet over medium heat (don’t do what I did and torch it.) J Lightly butter one side of bread. Place bread butter side down in pan. Sprinkle with cheddar, then apple and onion mixture, add some goat cheese, and finish with a bit more cheddar. Top with other slice of bread, butter side up. Turn once when golden brown on the bottom. Cook until desired doneness and serve immediately. Yummy!!
