My favorite take on the classic grilled cheese sandwich.



  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 slices white bread, sliced ½ inch thick

  • 4 teaspoons whole grain mustard

  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 12 slices Applewood smoked bacon, cooked until crispy

  • 1 Granny smith apple, sliced thin


  1. Over medium-low heat, heat a grill pan or large skillet. 

  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread, about ½ tablespoon per piece. Place four of the slices butter side down and spread mustard over the unbuttered sides of the bread. Top the mustard with shredded cheese, crisped bacon, and apple slices. Top the sandwiches with remaining slices of bread, buttered side up. 

  3. Place assembled sandwiches in grill pan or skillet. Cook until cheese begins to melt and the bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook the other side until golden brown as well. 

  4. Remove from skillet, slice in half, and serve immediately.
