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 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!

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.

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.

Reply

77 Marla April 25, 2011 at 5:49 am

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!

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 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.

142 Sunny Hernandez April 25, 2011 at 9:47 am

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. It’s really helped him make positive associations with the vegetables and eat them when they’re not covered in melted cheese! 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!

Reply

294 Marla April 26, 2011 at 2:13 pm

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!

295 Kim April 26, 2011 at 11:04 am

oh my favorite grilled cheese is cream cheese and green olives. Or provolone and pepperoni. YUM

296 Diana April 26, 2011 at 11:16 am

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. :-)

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:)

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.

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.

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… :D

Reply

383 Marla May 9, 2011 at 6:25 am

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.
