Apple and Fontina Grilled Cheese

On Labor Day, Bon Appétit posted 16 Grilled Cheese That Prove Perfection Does Exist. A few caught my eye and I shared the links on my Facebook page. We “kind of” tried the Apple and Fontina Grilled Cheese on Monday; yes, it was fairly edited to match our own tastes and preferences.

So what did we do?

  1. Buttered pumpernickel – not cocktail
  2. Balsamic Dijon mustard – not tarragon
  3. Shredded Fontina
  4. Peppered turkey – our addition
  5. Spinach – plenty, not just 4 leaves
  6. Sliced apple – we had Granny Smith, used the mandolin
  7. More shredded Fontina
  8. More Dijon
  9. Another slice of buttered pumpernickel

And then we put it on the panini press – delicious!

The crispness of the apples was awesome.
