  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place one side, butter side down, into a frying pan.
  2. Add Sriracha sauce, top with a slice of American cheese. Add about 6 thin slices of apples to the cheese and top with another piece of cheese.
  3. Top sandwich with another slice of bread, butter side up.
  4. Heat on medium low four 3-4 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and bread begins to brown. Flip with a spatula turner and heat the other side 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

How to Make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe Step by Step

1) Simply butter one side of the bread and place it butter side down in a frying pan.

2) Add the Sriracha sauce to taste and then top with a slice of American Cheese.

3) Add about 6 thin slices of apple (we used Jonagold but any crispy apple would work) and then top with another slice of cheese.

4) Top with another slice of bread, butter side up.

5) Heat on medium low for 3 – 4 minutes until the cheese begins to melt and the bread begins to turn golden- brown.

6) Flip over with a spatula and heat the other side until it also turns golden-brown.

7) Enjoy it while the sandwich is still warm!
