Apple Bacon Gouda Grilled Cheese & Pumpkin vs Apple FOOD FIGHT

It’s October… I can’t believe that it’s already October!

Fall is my favorite time of the year and it’s finally getting a little cooler. By “a little cooler,” I mean 80s (70s in the morning). Still very nice change and all we want to do is spend time outside.
I do have to apologize. I know that it’s not the 1st today, and that’s when Food Fights usually take place. September completely got away from me somehow. I realized that it was the 1st and I wasn’t ready for the Food Fight.

I am now…I’m late but it’s here!

This month is AWESOME! It’s Pumpkin vs Apple!

How much do you love me?

Apple vs Pumpkin

Before we move on to the fight, I have to introduce a new recipe that’s in theme with our food fight. It’s not an indication of what side I’m on, it’s really not! I love them BOTH equally!

Apple Bacon Gouda Grilled Cheese (c) #sandwich #apple #bacon

This Apple Bacon and Gouda grilled cheese turned out so, incredibly delicious! It’s made with sour dough bread, Applewood smoked bacon, apple smoked Gouda and Honeycrisp apples. Delish!

    I did everything I could to resist copying your apple bacon gouda grilled cheese and I lost the fight. It just looks so scrumptious and Honey Crisp are my very favorite apples. and I love Gouda cheese, and bacon…please. It’s a trifecta and I have 2 of the ingredients already. My kitchen is calling me.

  12. Stephanie says:

    Apple! I love them both, but I get tired of pumpkin a lot faster than apple.

  13. This sandwich looks beyond amazing, Lyuba! And while I love both pumpkin and apple recipes, this time of year, my heart belongs to pumpkin. I feel like I can get away with apple recipes all year long, but pumpkin is limited to just a few months. (Thanks for including my pumpkin waffles in your list, by the way!) :)

  14. I could totally go for one of these grilled cheeses right now, Lyuba! :) This looks amazing!
    Thank you for sharing at Marvelous Mondays this week!

  15. I could not decide between apples and pumpkins…unless you force me….then I pick pumpkin…of course if it is a honey crisp apple that is different. This sandwich looks delicious!
