When I found out I was lactose intolerant back in 2007, grilled cheese sandwiches were one of the many foods in my life that just had to go. I missed them, but I moved on in life and more or less forgot about them. Fast forward to this summer when I found Cabot’s Lactose Free Cheese. Throughout the fall, I’ve been making all sorts of variations of grilled cheese (like this Pumpkin Spice Grilled Cheese Sandwich), starting a new love affair with cheese 🙂 I’ve made this cranberry apple grilled cheese sandwich a few times now, and decided I couldn’t hold out on you all any longer!


  • 2 pieces of bread
  • butter to lightly spread on 1 side of both pieces of bread
  • apple slices
  • dried cranberries
  • spinach
  • cheese
  • onion (optional)
  • sliced chicken, turkey, or ham (optional)

Everything loaded on the piece of bread

Perfectly grilled on the outside

The perfect balance of melted and crunchy on the inside!

I can’t get enough of this sandwich. Like I mentioned in the ingredient list, I sometimes like to add meat (protein) and onions to this sandwich, but other times I skip it. The sweetness of the apples and cranberries go perfectly with the taste of the spinach and cheese. My ONLY regret with this sandwich is that I can’t make it at work, but often crave it during lunch. It’s delicious, and definitely worth the very short amount of time it takes to make it.


Now it’s your turn! Have you ever spiced a grilled cheese sandwich up in any way? Are you doing anything holiday-ish this weekend?
