Recipe: Grilled Mascarpone Apple and Dulche de Leche Sandwich

This recipe for a Grilled Mascarpone Apple and Dulche de Leche Sandwich came about as I was experimenting making a new breakfast sandwich… I had apples … lots of apples to use… and had a new batch of Dulche de Leche… and decided to see what I could put together… I must say… it turned out better than I had even hoped for.

I know Mascarpone is expensive.. but … in my opinion worth it… you can also use cream cheese for this.. and in fact.. might work better with cream cheese if you’re making this for kids.


I make a batch of Dulche de Leche periodically… it goes so well with so many things… it really is perfect for this recipe… you can use caramel sauce in its place… but use as thick a caramel sauce as you can find otherwise it can get runny.

If you do substitute caramel sauce for the Dulche de Leche… I would suggest you add it after you remove the bottom part of the sandwich from the grill pan.

I used some candied pecans with this.. toasted pecans work well also… or you can omit them.

The ingredients list cinnamon raisin bread … but if you want to substitute another bread .. you can.. but cinnamon raison bread works best.

This is definitely a knife and fork sandwich… a little effort to eat it.. but the flavors work so well together.. truly a special treat.

Recipe: Grilled Mascarpone Apple and Dulche de Leche Sandwich

All you need:

Cinnamon raisin bread
Softened butter or margarine
Apple jelly
Mascarpone cheese
Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
Dulche de Leche
Toasted or candied pecans (optional)

All you need to do:

Using two slices of bread per sandwich… spread butter or margarine on one side of each slice of bread.

Flip the slices over, and spread a thin layer of apple jelly on the bread. Set one slice aside.

On the other slice, spread a thick amount of mascarpone on top of the jelly.

Lay apple slices on the cheese.

Place about a tablespoon of Dulche de Leche on the apples.

Place the slices of bread, butter side down, on a hot grill (medium heat).

Grill until golden brown (you will need to peek at the bottom to check on it… it turns golden fairly quickly).

Remove the bread with the cheese and apple layers to a plate. Sprinkle with pecans, if using them.

Flip the other grilled slice of bread jelly side down on top of the other.

Press down gently.

Place a bit more of Dulche de Leche on top of the sandwich and sprinkle with pecans.

Serve immediately.
