  • Bacon slices
  • 4 thick slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 8 ounces sliced cheddar cheese
  • 1 large red apple


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 4 slices bacon on a rimmed baking sheet (lined with parchment paper for easy cleanup); bake until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels; tear each slice into quarters.

  2. Place 4 thick slices whole-wheat sandwich bread on clean baking sheet. Top with sliced cheddar cheese, red apple, quartered, cored, and sliced crosswise, and bacon. Bake until cheese has melted, 10 to 12 minutes.
