My kids loved the apple and cinnamon surprise.  It’s grilled cheese with a twist.

Healthy Tips:

*Omit the sugar for a healthier sandwich. I didn’t use any sugar and it tasted great.

*You may also use sprouted grain bread.  I like the Simple Nature Sprouted 7 grain bread, it’s available in Aldi for less than $3. Although I used regular bread when I tried this recipe. I also used Hormel Oven roasted turkey slices(No Nitrites added).

Try it and let me know what you think . Share your tips on making it even healthier.
