Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Apples

Farmer’s cheese is rich and creamy when melted and pairs perfectly with tart, crisp apple slices.


A chill is in the air and when I need a dose of comfort, nothing makes me feel more cozy than a warm grilled cheese sandwich. My Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Apples and Farmer’s Cheese was inspired by my recent visit with Ohio Dairy Farmers.


During our tour of the countryside, we stopped by Pearl Valley Cheese where I first sampled their delicious farmer’s cheese. Mellow, creamy and slightly pungent, I couldn’t wait to get home and create this sandwich.


Can you tell someone liked this sandwich??

If you’ve never tried apples in a grilled cheese, I urge you to give it a try. The tart sweetness of a crisp apple is the perfect balance to salty, tangy cheese.

Your family is waiting.

  1. Oh I LOVE Farmer’s Cheese! It’s always a special treat for us, because we don’t go to the Amish store often enough to get it all the time…when we really should. I’ll most likely be heading out there this weekend because we have family visiting from NY, so I’ll have to pick up some cheese so I can try this sandwich…I’ve never had apples on a sandwich before!
