Grilled Bacon Apple Sandwich

"This is a big, messy sandwich that sounds quirky but is delicious! Great for warming up in the fall and very kid-friendly. The proportions of this recipe are approximate, and feel free to change them to suit your needs. The bacon provides saltiness, the jelly provides sweetness, the apple provides tartness, and the cayenne pepper the spiciness. However, including all ingredients provides a more complex range of awesomeness."

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Spread the peanut butter onto two slices of bread; set aside. Spread the apricot jelly onto the remaining two slices of bread, and sprinkle with cayenne pepper to taste. Arrange half of the cooked bacon and half of the sliced apple onto each apricot jam-covered bread sliced. Top with the peanut butter smeared pieces of bread.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread the butter over the outside of the sandwiches and place into the preheated skillet. Cook until golden brown and crispy, then turn the sandwiches over, and continue cooking until golden brown on the other side, about 4 minutes per side.

Yummy! We used turkey bacon and strawberry jam because we had those ingredients on hand and this sandwich turned out scrumptious!

So easy a Bachelor did it!

Very good. A husband pleaser for sure. We used Dave's blues bread to make it a little healthier, and I think that made it even yummier! I liked the spicy after-taste.

It was okay. Even though my kids like all the elements that went in it they didn't like them together. They said is was all squished together.

Sounds really strange but really good!!!! From the pickiest eater ever, I saw the recipe and was intrigued. Had to make it. Everyone loved it!
