Take your grilled cheese up a notch with aged cheddar, crisp apple slices and and red onion on artisanal bread. Comfort food has never tasted so good. Pair it with our easy parsley salad recipe.


  • 4 tsp honey

  • 8 slices artisanal multi-grain bread

  • 2 cups grated aged cheddar

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 1 cup thinly sliced apple

  • 4 tbsp butter, melted


  • 2 cups flat-leaf parsley

  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp canola oil


  • SPREAD 1 tsp honey on a slice of artisanal multi-grain bread. Top with 1/4 cup grated aged cheddar,  red onion and apple. Top with another 1/4 cup grated cheddar, then sandwich with another bread slice. Brush top and bottom with butter. Repeat, making 4 sandwiches in total.

  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Arrange sandwiches in pan. Cook, flipping halfway through, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, 6 min.

  • TOSS flat-leaf parsley with  hazelnuts and apple in a medium bowl. Whisk apple-cider vinegar with canola oil and 1 tsp honey. Drizzle over parsley salad and toss until coated.
