Vegetarian Week: Grilled Green Apple and Mozzarella Sandwich

Grilled Green Apple and Mozzarella Sandwich
makes 1 sandwich

2 Slices of Bread
1/4 Granny Smith Apple, Cored and Thinly Sliced
Grated Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 Teaspoon Honey
Tiny Little Bit of Salt and Pepper

Preheat a skillet over medium heat.  Butter one side of each slice of bread, then place it butter side down in the skillet.  Layer apple, cheese, and honey evenly on the bread in the skillet.  Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper.  Top with remaining bread, butter side up.  Cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until bread is browned and cheese is melted.

The original recipe calls for Gruyere cheese, which the local Target doesn't carry, so I substituted the mozzarella.  The sandwich was pretty good, but I think it would have been even better with the Gruyere or some Kraft singles!  This is a great way to jazz up a plain old grilled cheese.  Bonus:  like a regular grilled cheese, this takes practically no time to make and you can snack on the apples while waiting for the sandwich to cook!  Also, I loved the honey in the sandwich, it perfectly balances out the tartness of the Granny Smith apples.  Hopefully I can find some Gruyere in Grand Forks for next time!
