Toasted Cheese, Turkey and Caramelized Apple Sandwiches

This recipe takes grilled cheese to a whole new level! The turkey and melted cheese topped with sweet caramelized apples on rye bread is scrumptious.


8 slices rye bread

3 tablespoons butter, melted

4 slices sharp cheddar cheese

8 slices smoked turkey, from deli

1 cup baby arugula leaves


3 tablespoons butter

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice


Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Melt butter in a skillet. Add sliced apples and lemon juice. Sauté about 4 minutes until apples are starting to brown. Flip apple slices over and sauté an additional 4 minutes. Drizzle honey over apples and cook 2-3 minutes until mixture begins to caramelize. Remove from heat.
To assemble sandwiches place 4 slices of bread on counter. Top each with one slice of cheese, two slices of turkey and a few spoonfuls of apples. Place ¼ cup of arugula greens on each sandwich. Top with remaining bread slices. Brush outside of sandwiches with melted butter. Place in a hot skillet and cook about 3 minutes until bread turns golden. Turn sandwiches and continue cooking until bread begins to brown and cheese is melted.
