Beet-Apple Grilled Cheese

Prep Time: 10 min // Cook Time: 12 min Servings: 3

What to do

  1. Preheat the oven to 450F°.
  2. Spread a small amount of butter over each slice of bread and spread about a tablespoon of whole grain mustard over the opposite side of each slice.
  3. Add one slice of cheddar cheese to the mustard side of every slice of bread.
  4. Layer apples, beets, and micro greens over 3 of the slices and place the remaining slices of bread on top to form sandwiches.
  5. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet and place on the center rack of the preheated oven. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or until golden-brown. Carefully flip each of the sandwiches and bake an additional 6-8 minutes, or until bread is golden and cheese is melted.

Note: as an alternative to baking the grilled cheese, you can prepare the grilled cheese on the stovetop in a skillet – just note that flipped the sandwiches may be a challenge. You can also toast the bread in a toaster and melted the cheese on the toasted bread in the microwave prior to layering the remaining ingredients on top.
