Turkey, Gouda, & Granny Smith Apple Inside-Out Grilled Cheese

Incredible Inside Out Grilled Cheese

4.7 from 3 reviews

After tasting this delicious sandwich you will never make a “regular” grilled cheese again!




  1. Preheat skillet over medium heat, add butter to the pan.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread (add spicy mustard to the other side of the bread, if desired)
  3. Place the buttered side down in the preheated pan.
  4. Sprinkle some Hickory Grove cheese on the bread, then layer on the turkey, bacon, and sliced apples, adding plenty of Hickory Grove cheese between each layer to “glue” the sandwich together. Top with 2nd slice of bread, buttered side up.
  5. Cook the sandwich on first side for about a minute then flip and add a thin layer of the shredded Calvander to the outside of the bread, let it sit for a few seconds until the cheese starts to melt and sticks to the bread.
  6. Add more butter to the pan then flip the sandwich back over and cook for a couple of minutes until the cheese/bread is golden brown.
  7. Repeat with the other side.
  8. Enjoy.


Feel free to mix up the ingredients. I love adding avocado to the sandwich, or using ham and cheese in place of the turkey and apple.
