Grilled Cheese, Apple, and Thyme Sandwich

Grilled Cheese, Apple, and Thyme Sandwich The cinnamon-raisin bread adds a touch of sweetness to the creamy Gruyere cheese, the apples add a little crunch and pop of tartness, and the thyme gives it freshness with just a tease of its flavor, just enough to make this sandwich special.

Instructions Checklist
  • Spread butter on 1 side of each slice of bread; flip, so that buttered sides are facing down. Top 2 slices of bread with apple slices, 1/3 cup Gruyere cheese, and a sprinkle of thyme leaves. Place the other 2 slices of bread on top, buttered sides facing up.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add sandwiches to the hot pan and cook until bread has toasted and cheese has slightly melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip carefully using a spatula, pressing down lightly. Cook sandwiches until golden brown and cheese has melted, 3 to 4 minutes more, watching and adjusting heat if necessary to keep bread from burning before cheese has melted.

  • Transfer sandwiches to a plate, slice in 1/2 diagonally, and serve immediately.
