I’m starting this weekend out right with a warm up to National Maple Syrup Day with a taste recipe from  Lee Hersh of Fit Foodie Find.   You can’t go wrong bacon, maple syrup and cheese!

Muenster Apple and Maple Bacon Grilled Cheese

Muenster Apple and Maple Bacon Grilled Cheese


  • For the Bacon:
  • 1 pound uncured bacon
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons Pure Canadian Maple Syrup
  • For the Grilled Cheese:
  • 2 pieces of multi-grain bread
  • 2 pieces of muenster cheese, thinly sliced
  • 4 pieces of apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 piece of Maple Bourbon Bacon, cut in half
  • ½ tablespoon butter


  1. For the Bacon First, place bacon in medium-sized bowl. Then, pour in Pure Canadian Maple Syrup in bourbon. Toss to make sure everything is evenly coated. Let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  2. Next, heat a non-stick frying pan to medium/high heat. Then, place bacon strips on pan. Cook for a few minutes or until you can see the edges turning golden brown. Use a fork to flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes, or until it reaches your desired texture.
  3. Place cooked bacon on a plate lined with paper towels. Pat with another paper towel on top to remove excess grease.
  4. To finish cooking the rest of the bacon, pour existing bacon grease from pan into a small container and wipe clean with paper towels.
  5. For the Grilled Cheese : Prepare your grilled cheese by lining a piece of multi-grain bread with thinly sliced muenster cheese. Then, add on the apple slices and bacon. Place 2nd piece of bread on top.
  6. Heat a nonstick pan to medium heat and rub with butter or coconut oil. Place sandwich on pan and cover. Let cook for about 3 minutes or until the bread begins to brown.
  7. Flip and cover again. Let cook for additional 2-3 minutes or until the bread begins to brown
