Sauteed Apple, Prosciutto and Original Blue Grilled Cheese

Makes 4 sandwiches

 

Apples and cheese are an age-old pairing, so it’s no surprise that this combination works as well as it does.  Sweet sauteed apples, salty prosciutto, creamy Original Blue and a touch of thyme round out this delicious sandwich.

 

2 tablespoons butter

1 red skinned apple, cored and thinly sliced

Salt

4 tablespoons butter, softened

1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced

8 slices sourdough bread (whole grain or wheat would work well, too)

8-10 slices prosciutto

3 ounces Point Reyes Toma, shredded

3 ounces Point Reyes Original Blue

 

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter.  Add apples and a pinch of salt.  Sauté apples, stirring frequently, until they begin to soften, 3-5 minutes.  Remove from heat.

 

In a small bowl, combine softened butter and thyme.  Butter the outside of each slice of bread equally.  Place bread slices, buttered-side-down, on work surface.  Top four slices with equal amounts of prosciutto, apples, Toma and Original Blue.  Top with remaining bread slices so the buttered side is up. 

 

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sandwiches, working in batches as needed, until bread is golden and cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes per side. 

 

Let sit just a few minutes before eating.
