It’s National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! And April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month! I’ve decided to meet the two food holidays in the middle and make this week Grilled Cheese Sandwich Week right here on Kate’s Cuisine. Stay tuned, I’ve got some great stuff planned for it!
There’s so much to love about grilled cheese sandwiches, but I think the thing I love the very most is that they’re so versatile. You really can do just about anything with them. This sandwich, stuffed with crisp apple slices and one of my very favourite cheeses is a great switch-up from the standard bread/cheese combination, but still lets you take great joy in the classic grilled cheese sandwich.
2 pieces of white bread $0.28
1/2 apple (of any variety,) thinly sliced $0.11
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced $0.16
1/3 cup Brie cheese, sliced with the rind removed $1.66
2 tablespoons butter $0.12
Total cost $2.33
Cost per serving $2.33
1.) Spread butter evenly over one side of each piece of bread. Place one piece of bread, butter-side down, into the skillet and then turn the heat on under the skillet to medium. Butter the other side of the bread that’s in the skillet (this is the only way I’ve found to butter both sides of the bread, and not get it all over your hands or the counter.)
2.) On top of the bread that’s in the skillet, place Brie cheese, red onion slices, and apple slices. Place second piece of bread on top, with the butter side down. Butter the other side of the bread (the one that’s now facing you.)
3.) Allow the sandwich to cook for just a few minutes (about 3 probably,) and then lift it slightly to ensure that the bread has browned. If it has, carefully flip the sandwich over and cook for another three minutes, or until both sides of the bread have browned, and the cheese has fully melted.
4.) Serve and enjoy!
