Sometimes you need to taste the best season all year round – this grilled cheese packs all of the comfy coziness of fall into every delicious bite! Don’t be like me – reach for a non-stick pan!

For 2 Sandwiches:

  • 4 slices good bread – Sourdough, Whole Wheat or Bakery White
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup Apple Butter or Pumpkin Butter
  • 4 oz shredded cheese – Gruyere, Havarti, Cheddar or Gouda
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • pinch of chopped sage or rosemary (optional)
  1. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of butter on 1 side of each of the bread slices. Sprinkle the butter with the Parmesan cheese, then flip the slices over. I like to do this on a sheet pan so the cheese is contained.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon (or more!) of apple/pumpkin butter on each piece of bread. Then sprinkle 2 ounces of cheese on 2 of the slices. Add the herbs, if you are interested. Flip the bread with no cheese onto the cheesy slices to make a sandwich.
  3. Heat a medium pan (non-stick works best) over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of butter. When the butter is foamy, add the sandwiches and cover the pan. Cook for 4 minutes. Add the remaining butter, flip the sandwiches, cover again and cook for another 4 minutes.
  4. Remove the sandwiches to a plate and let cool for a minute before slicing in half – triangles are best – and devouring!
