Instead of doing things the same old way, why not try something new and exciting? This recipe serves sweet and crisp apple slices on top of a bed of sharp white cheddar cheese for a unique afternoon energizer!

How to Make Cheddar Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Sometimes, the best things in life are the simplest, and this recipe is no exception! To make this tantalizing grilled cheese, you’ll need a few slices of bread, some shredded cheese (preferably white cheddar), an apple, mayonnaise, and some dijon mustard for dipping. If you’re looking for a gourmet grilled cheese experience, you can elevate your sandwich-making game even more with some quality ingredients like tangy sourdough bread, freshly shaved or shredded cheeses, and an artisan dijon mustard!
To start your sandwich, divide the shredded cheese evenly on both slices of bread.
Then, place a layer of thinly sliced apple wedges on one piece of bread.
Put your sandwich together and spread a layer of mayonnaise over the top slice of bread. For an extra kick of flavor, sprinkle on some chopped basil or rosemary!
Place your sandwich mayonnaise-side down on a pan at medium heat and sear for a few moments until the bread becomes a delicious golden brown. Spread a layer of mayonnaise over the untoasted slice of bread and place it back on the pan to sear. Once both sides of your grilled cheese have toasted, the cheese should be beginning to melt. Remove the sandwich from heat and serve alongside dijon mustard for dipping!
