  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 big pinch ground cinnamon

Step 1

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add in the apple slices and maple syrup, reduced heat to medium, and cook until apples have softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the spices.

Wipe out skillet.

Spread a bit of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Lay bread butter side-down on a clean surface and top one slice with the cheese. Layer on the caramelized apples and top with other slice of bread. Place in skillet (still set over medium heat) and cook until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown, flipping halfway though, about 5 minutes total. If the bread is browning faster than the cheese is melted, place a lid on top of the skillet.
