Grilled Cheese with Arugula and Apples

April 24, 2015 Recipes

Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 2 handfuls Simple Beginnings Baby Arugula
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) soft unsalted butter
  • 8 slices of sourdough bread
  • 1 small granny smith apple - sliced thin
  • 8 ounces sliced white sharp cheddar cheese


  • Toss the baby arugula with Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat a large sauté pan with butter. Generously butter all 8 slices of bread on one side only.
  • Begin to assemble the sandwiches by placing 2 slices of bread in the pan, butter side down. Layer on to the bread - half the apple slices, half the cheese and half of the arugula. Top with two slices of bread, buttered side up. Cook the sandwich until toasted on both sides and cheese is melted. Repeat the process for the last two sandwiches.

Enjoy with a crispy Spring Mix salad or warm soup!

Simple and Delicious!
