This recipe makes an amazing sandwich! I used a whole grain bread and sharp yellow cheddar. Thank you.

This was really good! I wasn't entirely sure about it but I love all of the ingredients so I went with it. The apple butter gives a perfect sweetness to the cheese and they blend together very nicely. Thank you for a sweet twist on a standard sandwich! We'll be using this one a lot!

I've been making this for years with a slightly different twist. I place two slices of bread in the pan, add the cheese and then apple sauce to one, let cook and then place the two slices together. This prevents the bread from getting soggy when in direct contact with the apple butter or apple sauce. You can even flip the free slice of bread so that both sides are golden. Its a beautiful thing!

Delicious! I added very thinly sliced apple to the sandwich. Very, very good!

So easy and delicious! Used Crock Pot Apple Butter and spread a thin layer on the one side instead of one dollop. Thank you for sharing!

I love this. I make it opened face, and I make homemade crockpot apple butter.

What a great idea. My 60 year old kid loved it as well.

I love apple butter too! My daughter is currently at age two in love with cheese so I thought I'd give this a go. Glad I did! It was very delicious. I used Musselman's Apple Butter and mild cheddar cheese. I was unable to find Challah bread here in Albuquerque anywhere, so I gave up and bought a white bakery bread loaf which seemed fine. I know I would have liked it better with challah, so now I am going to have to just make my own challah bread! (Might be a challenge at this altitude though! I'm still having a hard time baking at over 5000 ft up. Ha ha!) Next time I make this (and there will be a next time) I will try adding some honey maple turkey too. Yummy.

So yummy! I used Alpine Lace reduced fat cheddar cheese and Crock Pot Apple Butter. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I made this using a good buttermilk country-style bread (didn't have challah), white cheddar and I added bacon to it. I often make grilled cheese in the toaster oven instead of a pan and that is what I did here. I have made grilled cheese with apples before, but I think this was just as good and much easier to just add some apple butter. Wonderful!
