Sweet Potato Apple Grilled Cheese

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.

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.

  1. So, I am guessing the sweet potato is already cooked? another question – do you brown the butter in a separate pan and then spoon it over the lightly toasted sandwich to pan fry again? It sounds heavenly – I love variations on grilled cheese 🙂

    • Ahh! Great questions! Yes, cooked sweet potato. I browned the butter separately, but it could be the same pan, if you brown the butter first!
