Something about this time of year makes me want want comfort food, it’s cold and dreary out and I love warm foods. I think grilled cheese and tomato soup is definitely on that list for a lot of people. But I didn’t feel like a classic cheddar cheese and bread sandwich. I wanted to give it a total makeover and I’m sure glad I experimented and that my family doesn’t mind trying new things.
I know the name sounds a little interesting, at least that is what my husband said when I told him what was for dinner. I said wait and try it and then let me know what you think. It was a complete success, he thought it was delicious and the apple gave a nice little crunch. I can’t describe how good it was, I seriously want it right now and I just ate lunch so I’m NOT hungry, but it sounds so good! I’d like to say please try before you knock it because it will surprise you.
I would love to hear what you put on your grilled cheese, because I can’t wait to try your suggestions. Enjoy!
