Apples? On a grilled cheese sandwich?

Yes, you read that correctly. And don’t worry. I had the exact same thought. But, always being open to adventure, I put my skepticism aside and gave this gourmet grilled cheese combination a shot.

The result?


Sliced Gouda cheese has a sharp yet sweet flavor that can be described as buttery. This strong flavor is perfectly complemented by a sweet apple for a delicious sweet and savory experience you will definitely want to repeat. You can find Gouda cheese in the gourmet cheese section of your local market in blocks or in slices. You can use smoked Gouda for a stronger flavor, but I chose regular Gouda for a milder flavor. If the Gouda cheese you buy isn’t pre-sliced, simply slice and line the bread.

While the cheese needs to be Gouda, you have a few more options with the apples, depending on what flavor you are going for. I will say that with the sharpness and sweetness of the Gouda cheese, I would stay away from sour apple varieties, like Granny Smith, and opt instead of a sweeter apple. My favorite apple variety is the Envy apple. Crisp and sweet, the envy apple slices were the perfect flavor combined with the sharp cheese.

For the bread, I chose thickly sliced French Brioche, and I definitely wasn’t sorry. The sweetness of this bread, combined with the savory-sweet Gouda and sweet, crisp apples was the perfect finishing touch to this amazing gourmet sandwich.
