Spiced Apple Grilled Havarti Sandwiches

Spiced Apple Grilled Havarti SandwichesServe this autumn-inspired sandwich with hot mulled wine or apple cider, or chilled sparkling cider—with or without the alcohol.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter
2 large Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
4 to 6 tablespoons granulated sugar, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 tablespoon apple brandy (optional)
8 thick slices day-old bread
8 thin slices Havarti cheese
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

Cooking Directions:

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the apples 3 to 5 minutes. Add the sugar, cinnamon, and cardamom. Toss to coat the apple slices with the sugar and spices. Remove the pan from the heat. Set aside.
  2. Lay four slices of the bread on a griddle. Top with one slice of Havarti, one-fourth of the spiced apples, and another slice of Havarti. Place the remaining slices of bread on top of all. Butter the sandwich tops. Turn over. Butter again.
  3. Place the griddle over medium heat.
  4. Brown the sandwiches on each side for 3 to 5 minutes, until golden and the Havarti is soft.
  5. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Makes 4 servings.

Tip: Canned apple-cinnamon pie filling may be used.
