- 1 cup Ocean Spray® Fresh or Frozen Cranberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 16 slices bacon
- 8 slices hearty whole-grain bread
- 4 teaspoons mustard
- 1 large apple, sliced
- 1/3 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

Preheat grill to high.
Bring cranberries, water, cranberry juice cocktail, raisins, sugar, vinegar and ginger to a boil in cast-iron pot or Dutch oven. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened.
Meanwhile, heat oil in small cast-iron skillet. Add onion and garlic; sauté until soft and slightly brown. Stir onion mixture into cranberry mixture.
Cook bacon on griddle until crisp. Spread 4 bread slices with mustard. Top with bacon, apple and cheese. Spread cranberry mixture on remaining 4 bread slices. Place bread slices, cranberry side down, on cheese to form sandwiches. Melt butter in the griddle if desired and grill sandwiches until browned on both sides and cheese is melted. Cut each sandwich into 4 triangles. Serve with remaining cranberry mixture.
