Grilled Havarti Sandwich with Spiced ApplesA scrumptious grilled cheese sandwich filled with creamy, mild Havarti cheese and tender slices of sweetened and spiced sautéed Granny Smith apples.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, softened - divided use
2 Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
4 to 6 tablespoons sugar, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
8 thick slices rustic round loaf bread (French or Italian)
8 thin slices Wisconsin Havarti Cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add apples, sugar, cinnamon and cardamom; cook about 7 minutes, stirring frequently until most of the apple juices are reduced and the fruit is coated with a syrup. Remove pan from heat. Set aside.
  2. Place four slices of bread on a griddle. Top each with one slice of Havarti Cheese, 1/4 of the spiced apples, another slice of Havarti and top with remaining slices of bread. Butter sandwich tops. Turn over and butter again.
  3. Place griddle over medium heat. Brown on each side 3 to 5 minutes, until golden and Havarti begins to melt. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
