Stone Fruit Grilled Cheese with Maple Cinnamon Butter

We didn’t think grilled cheese could get any better, until we started playing around with a sweet-and-salty variation. We set out to come up with a kid-friendly recipe for parents needing to throw together a quick lunch for fussy eaters. (Gooey cheese, cinnamon butter, sweet fruit—you can’t go wrong, really.) What we didn’t expect was to find our new favorite late-night snack.

Stone Fruit Grilled Cheese with Maple Cinnamon Butter

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 2 sticks salted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 slices brioche bread
  • 4 slices of gouda cheese (or any preferred melting cheeses like gruyere, brie, mimolette, cheddar, etc.)
  • 1 stone fruit, pitted and thinly sliced


  1. To make the butter, use a hand mixer to whip the salted butter until light and airy. Add maple syrup and cinnamon, then whip again until well incorporated. Transfer to a small ramekin and store in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. For the grilled cheese, butter the brioche bread with 1/2  tablespoon of maple cinnamon butter per slice. Bring a large, nonstick pan to medium-low heat and add one slice of bread to the pan, buttered side down.
  3. Layer cheese, then layer the stone fruit slices on top. Top with the other slice of bread, butter side up.
  4. Once the bottom slice begins to turn golden brown (about 5-6 minutes), gently flip and cook until the other side matches.
  5. When ready, remove from heat and serve. Enjoy!

It helps the fruit stay in place if a thin layer of cheese is melted on the”top” slice of bread as well…then it “sticks” to the fruit slices when you put it all together, keeping the fruit from trying to slide out when you eat the yummy sandwich.
