Now that fall is here, I have been whipping up lots of delicious ‘fall’ recipes. I was really excited to make this Apple & Gouda Grilled Cheese because not only is it reminiscent of fall, but because it is super simple and delicious. I first shared this last month over on Just Us Four as my contributor post, but I knew I had to post it over here too, because y’all will LOVE it!!
I love making savory food, and this recipe is definitely that. When fall rolls around, I feel like food is so centered around apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, and sweet potatoes…as it should be. I just swoon over all of those things, and fall foods make me super happy. What is your favorite fall food? Is there something you associate with fall?
For this sandwich I used a smoked gouda cheese, and it’s up to you if you use smoked or regular. I think it would be great with both, but the smoked gives it this bacon-y punch that’s really special. Pairing the cheese and apples is a no brainer (think cheese plate), but now you are sandwiching it between two crusty pieces of bread. Then grilling it up, you melt the cheese and it becomes perfection.
