Apple & Honey Grilled Cheese

L'Shana Tova! It is officially Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and it is traditional to eat apples and honey in celebration, so your new year is sweet. I decided to do something a bit different this year and made mini apple & honey grilled cheese sandwiches. This recipe makes four mini sandwiches (serves two people).

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Eight small slices of bread -- I wanted to use challah, but my grocery store only had a cheesy french loaf. Not bad, though!
Two (2) ounces of fontina cheese, sliced
Two (2) small apples, sliced thinly -- I used gala
Two (2) tablespoons of honey
Butter for bread and frying pan

Butter each piece of bread as you would to regularly make grilled cheese.
In a warm frying pan, stack one piece of bread, cheese slices, an apple slice, a drizzle of honey and the top slice of bread.

Cook for 3-5 minutes over medium heat until golden brown.
Repeat for each sandwich.
