Gluten Free Grilled Arugula, Apple and Gruyere Cheese Sandwich

From time to time, a simple grilled cheese sandwich is just what you need to tide you over. But, add a few other ingredients and you have yourself a satisfying, gourmet sandwich. 

The mix of flavors in this grilled cheese sandwich combine well in your mouth. The sweetness of the apple mixes respectably with the slightly, tangy zest of the arugula and the nutty taste of the cheese. This grown up version of the classic grilled cheese, will become a staple in my menu plans.

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
Brush one side of each bread slice with extra virgin olive oil.
Place 2 slices of bread oil side down on cast iron skillet and layer each with 2 cheese slices, 4 apple slices, 1/4 cup arugula, sprinkle salt and pepper and add another slice of cheese.
Top with remaining bread slices, oil side up.
Cook on both sides until golden and cheese is melted, approximately 5 minutes.
