Cook Time
~10 minutes


  • ½ SweeTango apple, thinly sliced
  • ½ c Gruyère cheese, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin butter or pumpkin purée
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 slices of sourdough bread


  1. Spread 1 Tbsp of butter on one side of each slice of sourdough.
  2. On the “inside,” spread 1 Tbsp pumpkin butter (or purée) and half of the Gruyère. Add sliced apples to one side only, then close the sandwich (butter side out).
  3. Cook in a skillet on medium-high heat until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until cheese is melted and both sides are golden, buttery, and crunchy!
  4. Remove from heat, slice, and cry tears of joy because of the cheesy, apple-y goodness!
