“Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese is combined with apple slices, pancetta, and a sweet and savory spread on a grilled croissant.” - Barbara Kiebel of Creative Culinary

Let's Make This!

Ingredients
  • 1 large croissant, sliced in half
  • 2 Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese Slices
  • 2 slices pancetta
  • ½ apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries, chopped
  • Butter for grilling
Directions
  • Step 1

    To make the cranberry spread, blend together the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, and dried cranberries and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Place the pancetta in a pan or on a flat grill heated to medium. Cook until brown and starting to crisp. Drain. Wipe off pan or grill.

  • Step 3

    Melt 1 teaspoon of butter in medium heated pan or on flat grill. Place cut edges face down on butter until slightly toasted; approximately 1 minute. Remove from pan.

  • Step 4

    Melt another teaspoon of butter on pan or grill and place bottom of croissant in pan, toasted side facing up. Layer 1 slice of cheese, apple slices, pancetta, and another slice of cheese on top of croissant.

  • Step 5

    Spread the inside of the top piece of croissant with the cranberry spread and place it with spread face down on layered ingredients.

  • Step 6

    Lower heat and cover the sandwich with a lid or aluminum foil until the cheese starts to melt; carefully watching the underside so as not to burn. Carefully flip the sandwich over and repeat.

  • Step 7

    Remove from heat, cut in half, and enjoy.
