One minute fall is in the air and the next, it warms up to 70-degrees. Welcome to New England. I wanted some fall flavors for a night that was really quite warm. I decided to make a copy-cat Roxy’s Grilled Cheese. I used apple, sweet potato slices, and cheddar. Then I grilled it in brown butter. Hello. This is what dreams are made of.
Sharp cheddar cheese
sweet potato, cooked and sliced
2 tbs butter, browned
Layer the bread with cheese, apple, sweet potato, and another slice of cheese.
Brown the butter over low, being careful not to let it burn.
Pan fry the grilled cheese until very lightly tanned on each side. Then, spoon some brown butter onto the bread and flip the brown butter side down. Grill a few minutes, then repeat for the other side.
Give it a minute before slicing so all the cheese doesn’t escape.
I loved this. The brown butter really made a lovely touch…so worth it. I liked the apple crunch with the soft sweet potato and sharp cheddar. I’ll admit, some American Cheese would have been have been a good addition with the cheddar.
I will totally repeat this grilled cheese again this fall.
