Apple and Brie Grilled Cheese
Recipe type: Lunch
Serves: 2
  • Half a medium red apple, thinly sliced into rounds or wedges
  • 2 teaspoons expeller pressed canola oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry jam or fig jam
  • 4 slices whole grain sourdough bread
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces Brie cheese, broken up into small chunks
  1. Heat ½ teaspoon of the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and cook until heated through and slightly softened, 1 minute per side.
  2. To create the sandwiches, spread the jam evenly on each of the 4 slices of the bread. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese evenly over 2 of the slices and then top evenly with the cooked apples and Brie. Top with the remaining bread slices.
  3. Heat 1 more teaspoon of the oil in the skillet over medium heat. Carefully place the sandwiches in the skillet and cook until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. (I don't have a panini press, so I used a filled kettle as a "weight.") Add the remaining ½ teaspoon oil, flip, and cook until the other sides are golden, another 3 minutes. Slice and serve.
