Fall Harvest Grilled Cheese

Posted by   + Show Post

 

Fall Harvest Grilled Cheese

1/4 cup finely diced Granny Smith apple
1 Tablespoon finely diced pecans
1 Tablespoon diced dried cranberries
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon sour cream
8 slices Swiss cheese
8 slices sourdough bread, or other firm bread
4 thick slices ham
1/4 cup butter, softened

Stir together the apple, pecans, mayonnaise and sour cream; set aside. Heat grill or large skillet over medium-high heat. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place bread, butter side down on grill or skillet, Place a slice of cheese onto all of the bread slices, the add the ham on 4 slices. Cook over until the bread is golden brown on the underside and the cheese has melted, about 3 minutes per side. Spread the apple mixture onto the slices with cheese only. Top with the slices with the ham. Serve

 

This jazzed up grilled ham & cheese makes a great lunch, anytime of the year. I've also made them with Cheddar, or Havarti or Munster cheese. All are good.

After looking at the amounts again I can't see where 1T for 4 sandwhiches would make much difference either way.  I'll let ya know after trying it.

Quoting SweetLuci:

 Drying fruit always concentrates the natural sugar, so it's not really as tart as fresh or frozen raw would be. I don't believe most people would like it, but if you like tart, then do go ahead and try it. It would probably suit you just fine.

Quoting Kelly913:

I can't see where they'd be any more tart than dried, unless the dried have sugar added.  If that's the case, it still wouldn't work because I don't buy dried fruit with sugar added.  I figured since it had cranberries in it that it was supposed to be tart. 

Quoting SweetLuci:

 I think they would be very tart. I've always had to add sugar to raw cranberries.

Quoting Kelly913:

I know it says finely diced on the apples, nuts and cranberries and I'm guessing they really need to be small to keep it from falling out of the sandwich.  

I have frozen cranberries, no dried ones.  Do you suppose as long as they were well drained after thawing it'd work?
