How to Make This Waffle Sandwich Healthy
Lately I have been LOVING making new foods for Henry to try. So far we haven’t found much that he doesn’t like, which makes me so happy as a foodie Mama. He has scarfed down everything from avocado to chili dogs (everything in moderation, right?). This little boy LOVES CHEESE; like mother like son! I have a feeling in a few months these Apple Cheddar Waffle Sandwiches will be his all-time favorite dinner recipe!
Every time I cook a recipe that is reliant on delicious cheese, Borden® Cheese is my go-to. I have always loved their cheeses, using them in such favorite recipes as our Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket and Warm Crab Artichoke Dip. Their new Thick Cut Shreds are INSANELY good and unique…perfect for melting on sandwiches like this Waffle Grilled Cheese.
Each serving of Borden® Cheese Thick Cut Shreds is loaded with 7 grams of protein and 20% of your daily calcium, making this a guilt-free, QUICK dinner to make for your family.
Finding nutritious, easy to make weeknight meals can be quite the challenge. While experimenting in the kitchen with a new recipe is fun, it’s difficult to find the time between life’s busy schedule.

Easy Sandwich Recipe
Make your family extra happy this week and make them a delicious Apple Cheddar Waffle Sandwich! I have a feeling you’ll be making them again and again once they taste the simple flavors.
Being a busy mom has made me appreciate EASY recipes with only a few ingredients for the weeknight meals. This Apple Cheddar Panini is just perfect. I can throw it on the panini press, have it made in under 10 minutes, and feel good about what I’m serving my family!
The combination of (lots of) cheese, waffles, and that maple dijon makes this sandwich pretty rich and filling on its own. But no sandwich is really complete without a little something else to chomp on.
Serving this along with some more fresh apple slices (or any fresh fruit) on the side is just perfect for kids. I also love serving sandwiches with these sweet potato chips or shoestring fries. And of course, the ultimate grilled cheese pairing is tomato soup!
Make your next grilled cheese a little more gourmet by making this apple cheddar waffle sandwich. You won’t regret it!
