Gruyere and Apple Grilled Cheese

Gruyere And Apple Grilled Cheese
1 Serving
Serving Size = 2 sandwiches

4 slices thick cut bacon
1/4 cup sliced Crimini mushrooms
2 tablespoons sliced onions
3 ounces sliced Gruyere cheese
1 small Granny Smith apple, sliced into 16 wedges
Roasted garlic paste
4 slices good white bread
3 tablespoons unsalted butter

In a hot frying pan, cook the bacon until desired crispness is reached. While bacon is cooking, slice the mushrooms, onions and apples. Once bacon is complete, transfer to paper towels, drain fat from pan, return the pan to the stovetop and on medium-high heat, sauté mu
shrooms and onions. While mushrooms and onions cook, prepare the bread. On 2 slices of bread, spread roasted garlic paste. Cover bread with a layer of Gruyere, a layer of sliced apples and 1 to 2 slices of bacon. Set aside. Once mushrooms are browned and onions are translucent, transfer to a bowl and wipe pan dry. Turn heat to medium, melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the pan. Transfer prepared bread halves (with cheese, apples and bacon) onto the pan, top with mushroom-onion mixture, place second slice of bread over top and allow bread to brown and cheese to melt for about 4 minutes. Flip carefully, add 1/2 tablespoon of butter to pan and move sandwiches around to pick up butter (allowing the butter to brown, not the bread to burn). Let sit about 3 minutes.
