  • 1 tablespoon butter for the skillet + more for spreading on your bread slices
  • 4 slices bread any kind (I used a multigrain bread)
  • ½ cup freshly grated gruyere cheese; split
  • 6-8 slices prosciutto
  • ½ of any sweet crunchy apple; such as Honeycrisp, Fuji, Gala or Jonagold, thinly sliced using a mandolin slicer
  • Dijon mustard
  • Serve with fresh berries more apple slices, fig jam and Gallo's Sauvignon Blanc


  • Butter one slice of bread on both sides and set aside. Using a cast iron skillet or non-stick skillet, heat one tablespoon of butter in your skillet over medium heat. Let the butter melt completely and then lay your slice of buttered bread into the skillet and top with a ¼ cup of the grated gruyere cheese. Cover the skillet with a lid and let the cheese melt until it's almost entirely melted, for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Next, lift the lid and top the melted cheese with the prosciutto and apple slices and cover again with the lid for a minute or two. Butter one side of the second slice of bread and spread dijon mustard on the other side. Place the bread, dijon mustard side down onto the apples and flip your grilled cheese to begin toasting the other side. You do not need to cover the pan again since your cheese is already melting nicely. You can flip a couple more times if desired until you have nice, golden brown toasty bread on both sides.
  • Repeat everything for your second grilled cheese sandwich. Serve with fresh berries, more apple slices, fig jam and Gallo's Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy!
