  1. What a yummy twist on a grilled cheese! I used a Granny Smith apple and whole wheat bread. I also layered my sandwich instead of mixing everything into one spread. My layers were bread, half cream cheese mixture, slice of bacon, thin apple slices, the other half of the cream cheese mixture, the other slice of bread. Worked out great. Thanks for sharing - so yummy!! Will definitely make again!
  2. This is different; not your same old run of the mill grilled cheese! Great twist on an old fave! I can't wait to share it with my friends; this would be lovely for brunch or just a light lunch. I used a granny smith apple, and white bread, as that is what I had on hand. Thanks, Oolala, for posting a keeper!


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
