Gluten-Free Apple Cheese Skillet Bread

If you read the name of this recipe – Gluten-Free Apple Cheese Skillet Bread – and thought it was strange to combine apples and cheese, you were mistaken. Trust me on this one! For one, this recipe doesn’t use actual apples. It uses sparkling apple cider. That sounds better already, doesn’t it? The fresh, sweet taste of the sparkling apple cider pairs beautifully with the savory, saltiness of the cheddar cheese.

This dish makes a great side for a variety of dinners, such as a soup and salad meal or maybe even for breakfast with a side of crispy bacon! It uses just 5 simple ingredients (not including salt). One of those ingredients is my very own all-purpose gluten-free flour, which I actually use for all my baked goods. It works cup-for-cup in place of traditional all-purpose flour in all your favorite recipes.
