Apple Manchego Chorizo Grilled Cheese

Fall, Sandwiches

Fall has hit! This week the weather has finally chilled out and stopped being ridiculous. Hello fall, how u doing!?!

When the wonderful weather hits all I want to do is watch TV all day long and eat a gooey, cheesy grilled cheese and dip it in soup.

I can’t wait to have a free day to live my life. On days where relaxing is the only thing on my to-do list, I want my meals to be super quick and easy. But I still want them to be delicious and amazing.

For this post, I teamed up with Ozery Bakery because their buns are SO good and so light. I think I said this for our last post but I eat them a few times a week for breakfast. I usually just add a bit of mashed avocado and lemon juice. Oh and I also still make these sabiches all the time, too. I imagine this will become a full-time staple as well.

I made the simplest, most delicious grilled cheese that takes like 10 minutes to throw together. Grilled cheeses should not take that long!

I like the flavors in this grilled cheese, like, a lot because I’m on a chorizo kick lately. And I like the combination of spicy, sweet (apple) and the flavor on manechego. The Ozery buns work really well when cooked (before this I had only had them lightly toasted) because they develop a really lovely crust but are still super soft inside.

I served this guy with a light butternut squash soup with a bit of creme fraiche and pepitas on top. It was a total fall-win!
