​Johnny Apple Cheese Sandwich Recipe: 4-Ingredient Grilled Cheese Recipe Will Up Your Sandwich Game

The Grilled Cheese and Beer Cookbook is spiced with wit and a passion for all things grilled cheese and beer. This off-the-charts grilled cheese sandwich recipe from the book has cheddar, apple and bacon. Oh, my!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 1


  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced (or your favorite apple)
  • 3 strips crisp cooked bacon

Here's how to make it:

  1. Grease one side of each slice of bread and place in a frying pan on medium heat, greased side down. Place the cheddar on the bread so that all of the bread is covered. 
  2. Put the apple on one slice of bread so the cheese and bread are completely covered. 
  3. Add bacon strips to the other slice of bread and cheese. Once the cheese is melted, put the sandwich together.

Beer Pairing: This one has a lot to work with for something so simple. A good European-style lager will do well to complement the sharpness of the cheddar and the smoky flavor from the bacon. Heineken and Grolsch would both do fine, but for those looking to accentuate the apple, why not try it with a cider? Although not beer, anyone trying this on a warm sunny day shouldn’t shy away from a nice Angry Orchard or Naked Flock to hit the notes a beer wouldn’t.
