2 slices extra-sharp cheddar cheese
2 slices rye or sourdough bread
2 strips bacon, cooked
3 thin slices Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup assorted sprouts, such as radish or adzuki
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened, divided
Place one slice of cheese on one slice of bread. Layer bacon, apple, sprouts, and remaining slices of cheese and bread on top. Spread half the butter on top of sandwich. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat, and place sandwich, butter side down, in skillet. Spread remaining butter on top of sandwich. Cook until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown, flipping once, about 12 minutes.
