I like the idea of trying this as a grilled cheese as another reviewer mentioned. It's nice to be able to use whichever cheese or jam is in the fridge to make this tasty breakfast.

It's hard to go wrong with the classic combination of Cheddar cheese and apples. Try this once and you may be addicted.

I made this recipe with some substitutions and they didn't work for me. I used a carrot organge marmelade, and a milder cheese. I think you need the kick from the sharp cheddar and the chutney. I rarely have chutney on hand though. I'm going to try it today with peach salsa.
I tried this with chutney and then another version with a vegetable spread and cinnamon/sugar. Both were wonderful, even with Veggie Shreds rather than real cheese!
I'm always looking for new breakfast ideas that are satisfying, filling and quick. This recipe fits the bill. I used Ezekiel English muffins, Italian cherry conserve and sliced pears because that's what I had on hand. I used shredded cheddar. I'll pick up sliced cheddar for next time or maybe try another sliced cheese as the shredded cheddar was okay but it melt as nicely as a sliced cheese might.
It was better when I made it into a grilled cheese sandwich on wheat bread. Buttert both slices of bread, use 2 slices of 2
% sharp cheddar cheese with thin slices of your chose of apples. I used gala apples and cook. It is awesome.
