For a vegetarian option, omit bacon


Sandwich Ingredients:
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 medium red onions, thinly sliced
3 pinches table salt (to taste)
Fresh cracked pepper (to taste)
2 teaspoons honey
4 slices sourdough bread
½ KORU® Apple, cored and thinly sliced
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 slices bacon

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
2 tablespoons regular or light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon rosemary, finely chopped
½ teaspoon dijon mustard
½ teaspoon honey
Sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil, adding onions and 3 pinches of salt. Stir and cook for approximately 10 minutes, then add honey and black pepper and continue to cook until onions are transparent and caramelized.
  2. While onions are cooking, mix dipping sauce together and set aside.  Place bacon in a single layer on a plate between paper towels, and cook in microwave approximately 4 minutes.
  3. Butter sourdough bread. On each unbuttered side, place 1 slice cheese. Layer bacon, apples and onions between two slices of bread and cheese.
  4. Heat a large skillet on medium high heat and place sandwiches, buttered side to skillet, cooking approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until cheese is melted and outside of sandwiches are crispy and golden.
  5. Serve sandwiches with Honey rosemary dipping sauce and remaining sliced KOUR® Apples.
