Yes, folks. It’s National Grilled Cheese Month and to celebrate we are making this delicious concoction below. Although this may not be the healthiest choice, well, who cares… look at it!

I found this recipe on the Closet Cooking’s Blog and knew instantly that this was the winner.
A crazy-awesome infusion of some of my favourite foods ever: Caramel Apples, Grilled Cheese and… wait for it… BACON
Sweet and savoury, try this and you may just have found something so sinfully good that you will want to indulge in this over and over again. 
It’s so bad, it’s good.
Caramel Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich (with Bacon)
Tart apples in a bed of melted cheddar cheese and sweet caramel sauce along with salty bacon all wrapped up in warm buttery and toasty bread. (Homer Simpson drool)

Servings: 1 

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 slices cheddar (or 1/2 cup shredded)
  • 1/2 apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon caramel sauce
  • 2 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces and cooked (optional)
  1. Heat a pan over medium heat.
  2. Butter the outside side of each slice of bread, place one slice in the pan buttered side down, top with half of the cheese, the apple, caramel sauce, bacon, the remaining cheese and finally the other slice of bread.
  3. Grill until golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
Option: If you prefer the apples to be tender, and they stay in the sandwich better that way, saute them in a touch of oil or bacon grease until just tender, about 1-2 minutes per side, before adding them to the sandwich.

Option: Serve with extra caramel sauce for dipping along with a few apple slices.
