Rosemary Apple Butter Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

January 8, 2012

Grilled Cheese is magic. It’s universally loved by all- even that finicky 5 year old, who refuses to eat 80% of food, goes bonkers when you put a grilled cheese sandwich in front of him.  It’s a very therapeutic food.  It’s crispy, golden and gives you an instant case of the warm and fuzzies.

Because they are so fantastically simple, there is plenty of room to be creative and mess around with the classic American cheese on white….if you want to. My roommate Chelsea sent me a grilled cheese recipe from Framed Cooks that I had to try.  Apple butter and XX sharp cheddar. Holy shit. yes. And rosemary? Whatever, that could be interesting. Let’s do this:


2 slices of your favorite bread
Butter, softened
1-2 tablespoon apple butter
One teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves
Thinly sliced extra-sharp Cheddar cheese


(I copy/pasted the directions from Framed Cooks. I can bring myself to explain how to make grilled cheese. You should know this)

Smooth butter over one side of each bread slice; top other sides evenly with apple butter. Sprinkle rosemary over the side of the bread that is coated with apple butter. Top with sliced cheese and remaining bread slice, buttered side up.

Heat nonstick griddle over medium-high heat. When hot, turn down heat to medium and grill sandwich 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Enjoy (:
