Cinnamon-Apple Grilled Cheese Recipe

These sandwiches are great for breakfast or lunch, or even as a snack. To intensify the cinnamon flavor, try using cinnamon raisin bread instead of raisin bread. —Deborah Puette, Lilburn, Georgia

Over 500 calories, for one sandwich, that is way to many calories for one breakfast/ snack sandwich. Ouch, for my bloodsugar! and my waist line. I would try it once but not sure if the second time. Sorry!!

This 'one' you start with the base recipe and then toy with it. We'll all end up with 'Our Toy,' but they'll all be darned good. House full of kids who want a snack? This is one of your 'go to's.'

I used homemade cinnamon raisin nut bread. Instead of muenster cheese I used provalone. My husband loved it and said I should put it in with the sandwiches I make regularly.

I made this recipe for an informal gathering of good friends. Everyone LOVED it. Several asked for the recipe so I promised to e-mail the recipe in the AM. However, before I even had the opportunity to send the recipe two of my guests had already found the recipe online and sent me the link to ask if it was the correct recipe; they couldn't wait for me because they wanted to make it for their families for lunch!

I didn't really know what to serve with this sandwich, so I went with watermelon with fresh mint, and it turned out to perfectly compliment the sweetness of the sandwich.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 4, 2011

This recipe was good, but way too sweet for an entree; consider serving it for a unique dessert instead. It's so unusual to see cream cheese measured in tablespoons; it would be much easier to have this recipe translated to ounces of cream cheese as is customary. I used up some finely chopped walnuts that I had, but I think larger chunks would have been more pleasing texture-wise. I did use wholegrain raisin bread and loved the added nuttiness it gave the sandwich. Next time, I'll try it with more apple in thicker slices, larger chunks of nuts, and MUCH less sugar. In fact, the honey is sweetener enough without adding any of the confectioners sugar!
