White Cheddar, Apple and Rosemary Grilled Cheese



  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Smart Balance (or butter, your choice) (depending on the size of your bread, you may need 2 tablespoons total)
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 3-4 slices lite white cheddar (depending on the size of your bread) – feel free to use regular cheese vs. lite if you prefer
  • 1/2 apple, sliced thin
  • 2 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese


  1. Spread inside of each slice of bread with mustard. Sprinkle minced rosemary over mustard and add cheese slices (1-1/2 – 2 slices per slice). Add apples to one side of bread.
  2. Close sandwich and spread the outside of both slices with Smart Balance and sprinkle with grated parmesan.
  3. Place in preheated panini maker (or on stove top in a skillet) and cook until bread is browned and toasted and the cheese has melted.
