STEP 1

Cover 4 slices of bread with half of the cheese.

STEP 2

Top with sliced apple, bacon and then remaining cheese. Cover with the second piece of bread.

STEP 3

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough butter to coat skillet. Place sandwich in hot skillet. Place another heavy pan on top of the sandwich to press the sandwich together. Cook for about 2 minutes until golden.
