Lunch It Punch It, Recipes

Cinnamon Walnut Apple Grilled Cheese

What’s your favorite grilled cheese flavor?

The cheese paired with tart and sweet flavors of this recipe makes for a delicious and different lunch treat. I appreciate my mom for introducing it to me!

Yes, I do pack grilled cheese in my lunch. It isn’t the same as off of the skillet, but I’ve had to learn to adjust my preferences or love a repetitive packed lunch menu.

Swap out the ingredients to ones that fit your palate, budget and food supply.

1 cup tart apples
3 tsp butter, soften divided
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tap honey
3 tsp cream cheese, soften
2 tsp confectioners’ sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
4 slices raisin bread
2 slices muenster cheese, 3/4 oz per sandwich

Sauté apples slices in 1 teaspoon butter until tender

In small skillet, cook and stir walnuts and honey over heat for 2 to 3 min until lightly toasted.

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in walnut mixture, spread over two slices of bread

Layer with Muenster cheese, apple slices and remaining bread

Spray non stick skillet with cooking spray, toast until golden brown and cheese is melted

    Sounds kinda funny but it is delicious. I am a meat lover and this really hit the spot when my daughter made one for me.

  2. […] a separate reusable bag from my vegetables and protein and then assemble at lunchtime. I also like grilled cheese and quesadillas and don’t mind eating them […]
