Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: an apple and cheddar matchup from The Grilled Cheese

The Grilled Cheese, Kensington Market’s go-to joint for melted cheese goodness, originally brought in the Apple Crisp sandwich ($8) as a special. When it started outselling everything else, the eatery decided to let patrons chow down on it whenever they so desired.

“I wanted something with a bit of sweetness to it,” says manager Kathryn Farewell. “Cheddar and apple is a classic pairing — I knew it would make a great sandwich.”

Gala apples and red onions are caramelized with lemon and sugar and layered over market bacon, avocado and slices of mild cheddar. Served on whole wheat bread from Silverstein’s Bakery, the messy pick comes with a dill pickle slice and a handful of ruffled chips.

And for those who wish to pair their cheese with some brews, take-out orders to Ronnie’s Local 069 across the street are encouraged.

The Grilled Cheese, 66½ Nassau St., 416-868-9669
