Thinly sliced JAZZ™ apples are complemented by melty gouda cheese, and sourdough bread with a buttery crunch in this fresh take on the grilled cheese sandwich.
8 pieces thinly sliced sourdough bread
4 T unsalted butter, softened, but not melted
16 thin slices of smoked gouda (or white cheddar)
16 thin slices of JAZZ ™ apple
Butter each slice of bread on one side with approx 1/2 T butter on each piece. Lay out one slice of the bread buttered side down, then layer on top 2 slices cheese, 2 slices apple, 2 slices, cheese, then 2 slices apple. Place another slice of bread on top, buttered side up. Repeat for other 3 sandwiches.
Heat a large saute or grill pan over high heat and, once hot, add 2 sandwiches at a time to the pan. Turn down heat to medium and let toast until golden brown, approximately 2 minutes. Flip and let the other side toast for another 2 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove from pan and repeat with other sandwiches, then slice and serve!
Makes 4 sandwiches.
