How to Make an Apple Bacon Grilled Cheese

This sandwich is so easy to make and can be on the table in no time! Just start by cooking up some bacon in a skillet. I like to use about 4-5 slices of bacon per sandwich.

While the bacon is cooking, slice up an apple into thin pieces. I like to use Granny Smith apples because they are nice and tart, but you can use any type of apple that you like.

Once the bacon is cooked, remove it from the pan and set it aside.

To make the sandwich, simply add one slice of your favorite bread to a heated skillet or pan over medium heat. Add some butter or a spreadable condiment if you prefer. Then, add your cheddar cheese, apple slices and bacon.

Top with another piece of bread, cook on both sides, making sure the cheese is melted. Finally, remove your grilled cheese from the pan, cut the sandwich in half, and enjoy!

I love this apple bacon grilled cheese recipe because it’s the perfect combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy. Plus, it’s so easy to make that you can have it on the table in no time! If you’re looking for a delicious fall treat, I highly recommend this recipe.
