Cinnamon Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

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.


2 servings


1 cup sliced peeled tart apple
3 teaspoons butter, softened, divided
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons confectioners' (powdered) sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 slices raisin bread
2 slices Muenster cheese (3/4 ounce each)


In a large skillet, saute apple slices in 1 teaspoon butter until tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook and stir the walnuts and honey over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly toasted.

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in walnut mixture. Spread over two slices of bread; layer with Muenster cheese, apple slices and remaining bread. Spread remaining butter over the outsides of each sandwich.

In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, toast sandwiches for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
