  • 8 slices of large bread
  • 8 slices sharp cheddar cheese (or mild)
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and cut in half
  • 1 apple (thinly sliced (I used honeycrisp, but granny smith or any kind would be fine))
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  1. If you decide to turn the sandwiches into hearts, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the bread into heart shapes. I used a big heart-shaped cookie cutter, getting 1 heart per slice, totaling 8 hearts. Skip this step if you just want the sandwich.
  2. On a bread board, lay out all 8 slices of bread, buttering 1 side of each slice with 1/2 Tbsp of butter (feel free to use more or less if you'd prefer).
  3. On the unbuttered side of a slice of bread, begin layering the sandwich. Begin with a slice of cheese on the bottom. Top with two pieces of bacon. Top with a thin layer of apples. Top with another slice of cheese. Place the unbuttered side of another slice of bread on top. Do the same for all other sandwiches.
  4. Cook in a pan over med-low heat for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the sandwiches over and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Enjoy!
