    I have made this grilled cheese sandwich numerous times for my kids. They love it and request it over and over again. The apple-cheese-cinnamon-sweet mustard combination makes it out of this world. I have used ham instead of bacon and brick instead of jack and it still comes out a winner. – 1/21/2014


Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Jack and Smoked Gouda

Servings: 4


8 slices raisin bread
4 ounces (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1/4 cup honey mustard
8 bread-sized slices Wisconsin jack cheese
8 slices applewood-smoked bacon, fried crisp
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored, quartered and each cut in six slices (24 slices in all)
4 bread-sized slices Wisconsin smoked gouda cheese

Cooking Directions:

Spread each slice of the bread on one side with soft butter. Turn over and generously spread with 1 tablespoon honey mustard.

Place a slice of jack (mustard side up) on each bread slice.

Top half the slices (mustard /jack side up) with 2 slices of bacon. Shingle 6 apple slices over the bacon. Top remaining 4 slices (mustard/jack side up) with a slice of smoked gouda.

Assemble the sandwiches, pressing together and leaving buttered side of bread exposed.

Heat a large heavy-bottomed sauté pan over medium heat. Grill the sandwiches in batches, cooking until golden brown on one side, then flipping the sandwich over and browning. Repeat process with all sandwiches.

Place serving plates. Cut sandwich in half or quarters on bias. Serve immediately.
