To continue with my grilled cheese obsession, let me introduce you to the pulled pork and apple grilled cheese, with a secret ingredient — honey!
The apple in this grilled cheese adds such a great crunch and sweetness, and the saltiness of the pulled pork is balanced perfectly with the honey! I would honestly eat this sandwich every day.
Also, let’s talk about what bread is best for grilled cheese. A basic sourdough loaf works beautifully. Call me crazy, but even a ciabatta would be great. My recent favorite though, has been hearty multigrain bread! Dave’s Killer bread is great, and toasts really well in the pan with some butter.
If you love grilled cheeses, after you try this one you have to try my caramelized onion grilled cheese! And we can be grilled cheese friends forever.
pulled pork and apple grilled cheese
- 4 slices bread
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup pulled pork
- 1/2 red apple
- Add butter to a pan over medium-low heat. Add two slices of bread to the pan.
- Add cheddar cheese and pulled pork. Thinly slice the apple and layer it on the sandwich. Add the last two slices of bread on top.
- Cook on each side for a few minutes until the cheese melts and each side gets golden brown. It may be helpful to put a lid on the pan to help the cheese melt.
- Remove from pan and drizzle with honey. Enjoy!
