So it’s apple season. I must admit that it’s been creeping into many of my recipes but I don’t mind one bit because it’s fall and it’s time for all things apple. Grilled cheese is something that I’ve always had a love affair with; there’s something about the buttery, toasted bread and the gooey cheese that gets me every time. Most of my grilled cheese sandwiches are pretty simple, it’s typically white bread and American cheese but sometimes I use artisan breads, fancy cheeses, vegetables and meats. Since it’s apple season, I decided to toss SweeTango® apples in the mix. SweeTango is a hybrid of Honeycrisp and Zestar! apples; introduced in 2009, it is a seasonal apple that is only distributed in the fall.
Check here to see where it’s available in your area. SweeTango apples are a great snacking apple, so it was perfect in the recipe because the apples remain crisp. The salty bacon and creamy Muenster cheese really complemented the sweetness of the apples. I chose Muenster because it’s a mild cheese that melts really well and didn’t overpower the natural flavor of the apples. I’m giving away 12 SweeTango apples along with a canvas market bag, a miniature wooden cutting board, paring knife and an apple cutter valued at $75 to one lucky winner!
To enter the giveaway simply answer the question below in the comment section. Good luck and be sure to visit SweeTango on Facebook. The winner will be announced on Friday 10/16.

SweeTango Grilled Cheese Sandwich
2 slices sourdough bread
2 pieces of cooked bacon cut in half
½ SweeTango apple cored and sliced thinly
4 slices of Muenster cheese
1 tbsp room temperature butter
To make the grilled cheese sandwich, place 2 slices of cheese on one slice of bread then top with sliced apples and bacon. Add remaining two slices of cheese on top, then top the other slice of bread. Butter the top of the sandwich then flip and repeat. Place a nonstick skillet over medium low heat, then place sandwich onto the skillet. Cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and cook until the other side is golden brown; cheese should be melted. If the cheese isn’t melted, then the heat is too high. Remove from pan and serve warm.
