Cinnamon Apple Grilled Cheese!

Let's talk about grilled cheese for a minute- the buttery crispy golden bread, melty cheese combo that we all love. It makes me feel like a kid again, like my mom putting 2 Kraft singles between some white bread and flipping it on the griddle. But I'm not a kid anymore, I want a more adult grilled cheese. This is it. I can't even fully explain to you how great this combo is, I'm just going to recommend that you make it- ASAP. There's something so perfect about the cinnamon raisin bread, apples, and brie combo. They melt together into this buttery, cheesy, perfectness. I use Brie cheese because I love the combo of brie & apples, but it's really good with any kind of cheese- I've made it with cheddar in a pinch and it doesn't come out as beautiful but it still tastes fantastic.

Ingredients: (for 1 sandwich)
Brie Cheese (I used about a quarter of a wedge cut into pieces)
About 6 thin slices of apple (I use granny smith but any apple works)
2 Slices Cinnamon Raisin Bread
1 Tbsp. Butter

Step 1: Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. 
Step 2: Lay out the pieces of bread, cover one side with the cheese and the other side with the apple slices. Put 2 sides together and place in the skillet. 

Step 3: Cook first side for about 2 minutes or until golden brown, flip and brown other side, cook until cheese is melted and bread is golden.
Step 4: Cut in half (Or don't) and enjoy!
