These spicy apple bacon grilled cheese sandwiches are going to add some heat to your lunch. The sweet and spicy apple relish is my favorite part and pairs perfectly with the cheese and bacon.
It’s time for the third edition of #FreakyFriday!
Mr. B has been thrilled that I joined this blog hop and wants me to do it for all of eternity. Not only did the Honey and Birch headquarters get to eat some really great food, but it was so much fun to make and share another blogger’s recipe.
You may be wondering what the Freaky Friday Blog Hop is. Each of us bloggers (there are 15 of us this round!) was secretly given another blog to choose a recipe from to then recreate. Today, we all published our posts at the same time and found out who was assigned our blog.
I find the whole process very exciting – I love being able to pick any recipe I want from a website full of fantastic dishes. Plus, there is a fun anticipation in waiting to see who you is making one of your recipes and seeing what they chose.
And now it is time for the big reveal. My secret Freaky Friday blogger is…… Dini from The Flavor Bender!
The Flavor Bender
To say that I was excited to be assigned Dini’s blog is kind of an understatement. I have been reading Dini’s blog for a long time and I have always been impressed with her blogging style and her recipes.
Dini goes in to the most incredible detail when posting recipes – when she publishes a new blog post, I know that I am going to learn the history and the technique. For a self-taught cook like myself, it is perfect. When you make her recipes, you end up with a full stomach and a brain full of knowledge.
Picking a recipe to make for this blog hop was difficult. I actually made two of the recipes from The Flavor Bender and then picked the recipe with the better photos. The other recipe is her butter chicken recipe – it was delicious and the first time I ever cooked Indian food. I actually served it to Mr. B and his two friends and it received 6 thumbs up!
Some of the other recipes I was tempted to try and have added to my “to-make” list:
- Chocolate Swiss Roll with Salted Caramel Frosting
- Ginger and Basil Fried Rice
- Double Chocolate, Bacon and Black Pepper Cookies
and about 50 more. I think you would have a hard time narrowing it down too!
Spicy Apple Bacon Grilled Cheese
Although it was difficult, narrow it down I did and this apple and bacon grilled cheese sandwich was the winner. Holy delicious. I added the word spicy in front because that sweet and spicy apple relish is no joke. I made it as written but I changed the amount in my directions. Mr. B and I are big fans of spicy food and this was a little too spicy for us.
My mouth tried to revolt but I wouldn’t let it. Because this grilled cheese sandwich is so good I wanted to eat, like, 10 of them. Make the apple relish a few hours (or a day) before so that it is ready to go when you get hungry.
