Flavors of Fall Grilled Cheese (gluten-free, vegetarian)
8slicesof your favorite gluten-free bread
8slicesof cheddar cheese
1Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
1/3cupcoconut bacon OR regular bacon
2Tablespoonsor so pumpkin butter
2Tablespoonsor so mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise of your choice
Thinly slice Granny Smith apple and set aside.
Using mayonnaise, lightly "butter" one side of each slice of bread. I find it takes about a teaspoon and a half per slice of bread, but that will vary with the size of the bread you use. Mayonnaise makes a nicely grilled sandwich, better than butter in my opinion.
Assemble the sandwiches as follows:
Place four slices of bread mayonnaise side down.
Spread about a teaspoon and a half of pumpkin butter on each slice of bread
Put one slice of cheddar cheese atop the bread.
Next add sliced apples.
Then add bacon and cranberries.
Top with another slice of cheddar cheese and a slice of bread, mayonnaise side out.
Heat your favorite skillet or griddle pan (this is mine) over medium heat until a drop of water will skitter across the surface.
Grill in your favorite skillet or griddle pan (this is mine) until nicely browned on one side. Gently flip to other side and grill until browned. Slice in your preferred way (mine is diagonally) and serve immediately.
