Apple Cinnamon Swirl Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Apple Cinnamon Swirl Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Although I was really enjoying slices of the cinnamon swirl bread done up like cinnamon buns with cream cheese frosting for breakfasts this week, I could not help but think about using some of the bread for something else. Naturally I thought about using it to make a sandwich and of course the first sandwich that came to mind was one of my favourite types of sandwiches, the grilled cheese sandwich. While I was thinking about how to do a grilled cheese sandwich with bread with a sweet swirl of cinnamon in it I kept thinking about apple pie for some reason. Apple and cheddar are a great flavour combination that I use rather frequently and I figured that a cinnamon swirl grilled cheese sandwich would be just about perfect!

I could have gone two ways with this apple and cinnamon grilled cheese sandwich, I could have gone with straight apple slices or I could have caramelized them first and this time I decided to go with just the slices of apples so that I would be able to enjoy their fresh, juicy crispness. The apple cinnamon swirl grilled cheese sandwich turned out really well! The apple and cheddar combination was once again a winner and the crisp, buttery bread with hints of sweet cinnamon worked really well with it! Now I am torn between cinnamon swirl bread 'buns' and grilled cheese sandwiches for the rest of the loaf!

My family love grilled cheese sandwiches, and I always have too many apples on my apple tree in my gorchard, so this will come in handy as how to solve 2 problems at the same time!

Thanks,

This is so great, glad to have stumbled on your blog. now itching to make cinnamon bread and rather tempted to add pork to it for lunch.

Little story. My parents live on grilled cheese. One night as a poor newlywed my husband and I headed to their house to bum some dinner. We knew that the least we would get was grilled cheese and we laughed about it on the way. When we got there they were making grilled cheese! But they were trying a recipe from the newspaper, it had apple slices, cheese, and vanilla ice cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yummy!
