Truffle Fontina Grilled Cheese with Bacon and Honey Crisp Apples Recipe

 

Ingredients:

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella, 1/4 inch thick
  • 8 slices pumpernickel
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons Giorgio White Truffle Oil 
  • 16 slices fontina, thinly sliced from the deli
  • 1 Honey Crisp apple, peeled and sliced really thinly

Directions:

-Cook the bacon in a large saute pan over medium heat until brown and crispy on both sides. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and reserve.

-Preheat a griddle or nonstick saute pan to medium. Between two pieces of paper towels, pat dry the mozzarella.

-Spread each piece of bread with a thin, even layer of butter. Drizzle the other side of each piece of bread with truffle oil. Lay the bread down with the truffle sides facing up on a baking sheet.

Place one slice of fontina, one slice of mozzarella and then another slice of fontina on each piece of bread. Lay 3 bacon slices on half of the slices of the cheese-lined bread. Top the bacon with an even layer of apple slices (these are the bottoms, the ones with just cheese are the tops–together they make a pair!).

Place the tops and bottoms on the griddle butter-side down and cook until the bread gets brown and crusty and the cheese begins to melt, 5 to 7 minutes. When the cheese is nice and melty, flip the tops onto the bottoms so the cheese is on the inside. Give each sandwich a press, flip over and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.
