Grilled Havarti Sandwich With Spiced Apples

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by WiGal

Posting for ZWT6. A variation from And after making myself I DID reduce the butter as Kim127 suggested. And after looking at momaphet's review and the original recipe I did reduce the sugar amount. Thank you both. Also think the caramelized onion is a wonderful suggestion.

What a fabulous lunch!! Loved the flavor of the spiced apples with the melty havarti!! Very easy to make. You can definitely cut the butter down a bit. I used about half. Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens ZWT6!!
