I like to call this culinary creation grilled cheese with a delicious twist! When I was studying at University my favourite sandwich to get from the campus café was the turkey apple cheddar. The blend of flavours made for the perfect trio that was both tasty and pretty healthy, too. This fall has been the season of grilled cheese for me, so I was inspired to think back to my uni days and decided to add my favourite sandwich ingredients to the grilled cheese mix, plus a spicy little addition. The result is dreamy; not to mention you can put it together in about ten short minutes (maybe even five!).

I hope you guys enjoy the spicy twist on the classic grilled cheese. Now you can wow your family or lunch guests with the unexpected yet delectable combination of flavours!
