tablespoons butter, softened
whole green apple or asian pear, cored and thinly sliced

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spread butter evenly on both sides of two slices of bread. Add one slice cheddar cheese, a few green apple (or Asian pear) slices, kimchi and one more slice of cheese evenly on one piece of bread. Top with the other slice of bread.
Place the sandwich in the skillet and cook, pressing with a spatula from time to time, until the underside is golden brown and the cheese starts to melt. Repeat on the other side, transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately!
