Gourmet Grilled Cheese with Peach Apricot Preserves

Main Ingredient: Bread

Yield: 1 sandwich


  • Two slices for your favorite bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 ounces Cheddar Cheese, sliced
  • 1 oz of peach apricot preserves
  • 2 thick slices of tomatoes
  • Arugula
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic, minced
  • Lemon juice
  • Paprika


  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, splash of lemon juice and a dash of paprika. Set aside.
  2. Using a pastry brush, butter each slice of bread on one side, and place the slices, buttered side down, on a work surface. Top each of these slices with Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, argula, mayonnaise mixture and preserves. Top with the remaining  bread slices, buttered side up.
  3. Lightly butter and heat a griddle, heavy skillet or Panini press until hot. Place 2 sandwiches in the skillet and weight with another heavy pan or skillet. Brown slowly on one side for 2-3 minutes before turning, with a spatula, and grilling the other side until brown and cheese melts. It may be necessary to add a bit of butter to the skillet.
  4. Serve immediately.
