This recipe is inspired by Dave’s Killer Bread. They have a recipe for roasted peach and gouda grilled cheese but it’s fall in New York and I wanted to use apples instead. So when I say inspired it by, it was loosely inspired by.

Every year in the fall the family and I go apple picking either upstate New York or on the North Fork of Long Island. This year we had a bounty of Gala apples that I was just waiting to use for a recipe. 

As for Dave’s Killer Bread, we always have a loaf on hand. It’s non-gmo, organic bread that you can feel good about eating. I love everything their company stands for. 

2 slices of Dave’s Killer Bread Thin Sliced 21 Whole Grains and Seeds
1 Gala apple sliced
2 ounces smoked gouda, grated
2 Tablespoons Big Lou’s Sweet Onion Sauce
1 Tablespoon Grass Fed Butter
Honey for drizzling

how to make an onion grilled cheese

Preheat frying pan on medium high heat. Place ingredients on bread starting with half of the smoked gouda cheese, then the sliced apples, the Big Lou’s Onion Sauce and the rest of the cheese, then drizzle with honey.

You want the cheese touching the bread on both sides so it seals in the apples and the onions. I did not do this in my video and need to do it again, check my Instagram at https://instagram.com/biglousonionsauce for redo on this one.

Add butter to the frying pan and press sandwich onto the hot pan. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Cut in half and enjoy!
