Sheet Pan Grilled Cheese with Apple and Dijon

Recipe Swap

 Serves: 4


  • 6 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 tbsp butter, softened
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 tsp grainy Dijon mustard, divided
  • 1 small Gala or Fuji apple, cored and very thinly sliced



Preheat oven to 425 degrees, placing top rack in upper third of the oven.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Spread the butter on one side of each bread slice. Arrange 4 slices of bread butter sides down on the prepared sheet. Spread the bread with the mustard then top with the apple slices, cheddar and remaining 4 slices of bread, butter sides up. Press down gently.

Bake the sandwiches 10-12 minutes, until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown, turning once halfway through.


** I substituted smoked gouda cheese and I added some cooked bacon. I also used Dave’s multi-grain bread.
