German Style Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese with a German twist!


  1. Turn grill on high.
  2. In a medium sauté pan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp but not all the way cooked. Add onion, apple, salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes or until onions are brown.
  3. Add sauerkraut and cook until heated through. Reserve.
  4. Brush 4 slices of bread with butter, spread opposite side with 1 tablespoon mustard. Top each sandwich with 1 slice of Swiss cheese, ¼ of sauerkraut mixture and ¼ of Havarti.  Top with remaining bread slices. Place buttered side of bread down on grill. Brush top slice of bread with butter. Cook sandwiches until cheese is melted, flipping halfway through.
