The sweetness of the apples and honey mixed with the bite of the gruyere was delicious. Using good quality honey really makes a difference. It is the star of the sandwich!

Brilliant idea! The honey really makes it! And I assume this would be just as delicious with pears, too!

My husband and I liked but the kids didn't. Using a Granny smith made a big difference. I might try a different cheese next time because the gruyere is pretty expensive.

My family loves grilled cheese sandwiches and it was great to find a new twist to the old standby. I used sourdough bread instead of the bread indicated in the recipe.

Yummy! I really liked this sandwich! The honey-apple-cheese combo is truly an interesting one. I cut this down to make one sandwich, used red apple instead of green (coz that's what I had on han...

yum! i didn't need the salt and pepper.

I always love a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, but this replaces it!! Except, I substituted mozzarella for the gruyere. A whole lot cheaper and you don't have to grate the cheese!

It really is that good

Yum. This is going to go into my regular rotation.
