Swiss Cheese, Goat Cheese, Apple, and Spinach Grilled Cheese for Grilled Cheese Month

I made this Grilled Cheese sandwich, Swiss Cheese, Goat Cheese, Apple, and Spinach Grilled Cheese for National Grilled Cheese Month, which is this month. I wanted to change things up a bit, and make a classier grilled cheese sandwich.  This is not your Momma's Grilled Cheese Sandwich.  I have eaten many a grilled cheese with the ooey, gooey, melted American Cheese in my time but I wanted something different.   I knew that I wanted apple and spinach, and then I had some goat cheese with fine herbes and I also found  Swiss cheese that I found in our other refrigerator. I had  bought extra Swiss Cheese, when I had Fondue, a couple of months ago. I had written "Do Not Eat", on the package, so my Hubby wouldn't eat it. Guess What?  He didn't eat it. Now back to the sandwich.

We made this grilled cheese on our George Foreman Grill.  It had been on the top shelf of our pantry collecting dust. After a good scrub, George was ready to make my new creation. We do have a grill pan that goes on the stove, but totally forgot about it.  This sandwich was a little healthier using cooking spray on the George, and a little Smart Balance spread on the whole wheat bread. First we layered crumbly pieces of the Goat cheese on the bottom.  Then we added thinly sliced Swiss cheese, and next came the thinly sliced Gala Apple.  We topped the whole thing off with Fresh Baby Spinach, uncooked.  My Hubby doesn't like"slimy" cooked spinach.

This grilled cheese was amazing, and I'm not a cheese lover, like my Hubby is. The Swiss cheese and Goat cheese melted together with layers of herby  flavor in your mouth.  The Gala Apple was tender, not mushy, and the spinach was just heated through, not "slimy". All in all, I would give this sandwich Five Stars.  We paired out amazing sandwich with a cup of the leftover Asparagus Soup, instead of the traditional Tomato soup.  The Asparagus soup was  wonderful  with our Swiss Cheese, Goat Cheese, Apple, and Spinach Grilled Cheese Sandwich.  We'll be making the sandwich again.
