Elevated Grilled Cheese

The Flavor of Fall creates an unforgettable twist to this American classic

Ah, fall apples and grilled cheese, two delightful ingredients that come together to create a symphony of flavors and textures to celebrate the season.  The result is a scrumptious grilled cheese sandwich with the sweet and slightly tart flavor of apples complementing the rich, gooey cheddar cheese. The apples add a delightful crunch and a hint of freshness to the sandwich.  This fall-inspired grilled cheese sandwich is sure to satisfy you in every bite!
