My advice?

Advert your eyes now before you are sucked into the sweet savory brie-filled world of apple pie grilled cheese.


Oh, no.

You didn’t.

Well, on the bright side, at least we can be goners together!!

On the significantly less, (but still), bright side, we are probably never going to be able to eat grilled cheese any other way again.

Honestly? There are worse fates.

I mean, this could have contained celery. God forbid.


But instead it has apple pie filling and more brie than I care to acknowledge I’m capable of eating in one sitting.

Yeah, we’re going to be eating one of these every day for the rest of forever.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Apple Pie Grilled Cheese
Ever wanted to eat apple pie for lunch? Now you can with these apple pie grilled cheese sandwiches! Stuffed with homemade apple pie filling and loads of gooey brie, these are the perfect fall sandwiches.
Yield: 4 sandwiches
  • 4 tbsp butter, divided
  • 3 honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 slices bread
  • 8 oz brie, thinly sliced
  1. In a medium skillet, heat 2 tbsp butter until melted. Add the apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon to the pan. Saute until apples soften and the brown sugar reduces into a thick syrup, about 6-7 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Divide the brie evenly among the slices of bread. Top half of the slices with the apple mixture and then carefully put another bread slice on top so that with each sandwich, you have a bread layer, a brie layer, a middle apple layer, another brie layer, and a second slice of bread.
  3. Heat the remaining butter in the skillet. Add a sandwich to the pan and cook on one side, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until the brie starts to melt. Flip and cook until the second side starts to brown, another minute or so. Repeat with remaining sandwiches. Serve warm.

  6. ooeey gooey yummy! Let’s have a grilled cheese party please!

  7. Trisha says:

    I just got some honey crisp apples at the grocery store this week and they are so.dang.good. I’ve been eating them non-stop so obviously the next logical step is to have them with bread and cheese–my life staples. Ingenious recipe!

  8. Didn’t know this combo went so well together 😛
    Need to try it now!

  10. Mmmm, this definitely sounds like a winner!

  12. SallyBR says:

    I wasn’t sure what to make of the title of your post on my email notification, part of me thought “is she ok?” 😉

    but you know what? I think this is a great take on grilled cheese, everything goes very well together

    You outdid yourself…

  13. Heather says:

    YUM. I may have to scrap my plans of making chili tonight.

  14. Look at that melted brie!! I’m all over this sandwich right now!

  15. I love the balance in these – sweet and cinnamony apples with brie – all in a sandwich! BRILLIANT!

  16. Julia says:

    The brie gooooo! I want all the brie goo in my face! Love the apple-brie combo, my dear…this is most excellent!

  17. Joanne, I freaking love this!! I love sweet + salty together. . in fact, I always do thinly sliced apples in my grilled cheese sandwiches. . I also add some prosciutto .. yumm!! But the “apple pie” brown sugar and cinnamon here is brilliant!

  18. This toastie sounds amazing! Brie + apple = delish!

  19. Pam says:

    Gooey and delicious! I love the sweet/savory combination. YUM.

  20. I am always up for new grilled cheese ingredient combinations…and this one looks faaaantastic! Great way to use those extra apples from the orchard that I have hanging around.

  21. I’m so all over this. All the brie, always and forever!

  22. Corina says:

    I’d never have thought to put apple in a toasted sandwich with cheese before – it looks yummy though.

  23. I now know what I’m having for lunch! This looks amazing!

  24. I definitely want to eat apple pie for lunch (and breakfast, and dinner)… This looks amaaaaazing!

  25. HELLO! That last time I put apples in a grilled cheese it was with cheddar….need this!

  26. I was a goner before I even started reading. Omg. PINNED.

  27. YUM and sounds SOOOO Good! I could eat one right now!

  28. Kate says:

    Sometimes you make things that just seem so…duh. Like why hasn’t anyone else thought of this? Like this. Apples and cheese are a known thing, apples in grilled cheese also not too novel an idea. But who else could think of apple pie grilled cheese?

  29. I just died and went to grilled cheese heaven.

  30. It looks to die for! I NEED one too.

  31. Foodiewife says:

    Why didn’t I think of this the other day, as I was slicing Gouda cheese and apples? I am so making this! You are so clever!

  32. cheri says:

    What a great sandwich, love this combination!

  33. Hotly Spiced says:

    When I read the title I was immediately intrigued. I love the combination of apples and brie and have it often but have never taken it to the next level where it’s a toasted sandwich! This looks really good and it’s the morning here and I haven’t had breakfast and one of those would be excellent xx

  34. Kinsey says:

    That looks absolutely amazing! Between the buttery, golden brown bread and the way the apples will melt in with the cheese and all the spices–it just sounds incredible! It’s like having the baked brie all to yourself at holiday parties instead of having to share it with the people that take all the good stuff and leave none of the gooey brie and preserves.

  35. Oh gosh!! Yes yum yummmm.. these sandwiches are heavenly.. apples and brie cheese what a combination. . I am for sure going to be eating these everyday for the rest of foreverrrrrrrr!!! 🙂

  36. Rivki Locker says:

    Well, when I want apple pie for lunch, I usually just eat apple pie for lunch. It’s practically healthy with all that fruit in it, isn’t it? 😉 This recipe would probably make me feel less guilty, though, and be a little better on the waist line. Lovely looking recipe!

  37. Johanna GGG says:

    oh my that looks mazing – and it is lunch time and I do not have any brie in the house – sob

  38. Reeni says:

    Just when I thought I had hit a wall with apples – I want this in my face right now! LOVE. Thanks for linking my grilled cheese!

  39. Katerina says:

    I love sweet and savory dishes! Perfect sandwich!

  40. This is a cheese recipe I can get behind – sweet and savoury works so well!

  41. Kathryn says:

    Oh man, this flavour combo is insane!

  42. Susan says:
