This recipe is made just like a grilled cheese, except with applesauce. The applesauce kind of soaks into the bread as it cooks. This is a great snack that my Mom used to make for me as a child. My children love this as a 'late night' snack.

I made this recipe paired with the peanut butter/banana grilled sandwich. I actually did cinnamon applesauce on one side and Adams crunchy peanut butter on the other side then cooked it in a buttered pan. The kids LOVED it. I will make it again. Read More

I used to eat these as a kid but with a little difference in the recipe. I use cream cheese on one piece of honey wheat bread and then add the applesauce. After lightly grilling I sprinkle with cinnamon...makes it like an apple turnover... Read More

I can't believe it my 2-year-old ate a WHOLE sandwich!!! She's so picky but she thought this was GREAT! I think it would be best to use a pretty sweet applesauce rather than unsweetened. I also think this recipe would be great with ripe bananas or whole fruit preserves. One note you have to serve the sandwiches immediately as they get soggy pretty fast. Read More

Instead of apple sauce I use apple pie filling.I made these for a bridal shower brunch and cut each sandwich into 4 triangles. I arranged them all on a plate and dusted them with powdered sugar. They were a hit! Nice and simple to make without alot of fuss or clean-up. Read More

Unfortunately I was not impressed with recipe. It reminded me with toast with apple butter spread on it. I thought it could have had more flavor...maybe a sprinkling of cinnamon or something. Read More

I always used to make these for my lunches and they turned out fine if they could make my lunch bag first. I started to make them because I could no longer have certain foods and was tired of sandwiches. These are awesome. They only get soggy when you use different types of bread that are flimsy. I use frozen spelt bread and it doesn't get soggy. Also try it with spice bread or Applesauce Bread to give it a nice kick. Read More

Totally delicious. Make sure that the bread is browed nicely.... otherwise the sandwich will be too soggy. Once the bread was brown the sandwich stayed together and it was awesome!!! Read More
