Grilled Cheese of a Different Sort

We're all on the same page here, correct?  We all love us some good old fashioned grilled cheese.  If you don't love grilled cheese you most certainly didn't cry when Mufasa died in the Lion King.  I'm telling you that you don't have a heart.  This recipe isn't for you, Tinman.

For the rest of you beautiful folk, take a peek and maybe enjoy!  I took a favorite and tried something different and it ended up tasting pretty damn good.


  1. Bread.  Take your pick.  I went with a multi-grain option.
  2. Butter
  3. Granny Smith apple
  4. Brie cheese
  5. Smoked ham
  6. Pecans
  7. Caramel syrup
  8. Chardonnay, beer whatever, just enjoy a drink while whipping 'er up


Slather your two slices of bread on one side with the butter.  Cut your apple into thin slices.  Do the same to your Brie cheese.  You can chop up your pecans if you want.  Go nuts!  Get it?  Good.  I placed my cheese on one of the slices of bread first then stuck the pecans to that for ease of my future flipping.  Then I layered that with the apples and placed my ham on the other piece of bread.  Last but not least I drizzled a bit of that caramel syrup on top of my apples.  Make sure you pop your bread into the pan butter side down.  I let each separate slice of bread sizzle for a minute and then I combined the sandwich into one giant glorious mess.  The rest should be history.  Let your bread toast and crisp and brown or get it to whatever your desired texture might be.  Hell, I'm not going to tell you how to fry that goodness up!

And that's it.  Sorry, it's no recipe that will ever be featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives but Guy's a clown anyway.  This is for the personal kitchen.  Get after it and enjoy!  I did.
