A very satisfying sandwich! Was mildly concerned that the cheddar cheese would over power the apricots (which we do so love) but good quality mild cheddar did not over power instead it made a tasty warm blanket for this sweet little sandwich. I made using lightly toasted 7 grain bread and over ripe fresh apricots, would recommend anyone trying this with canned apricots dry them with paper towels. Thanks for the post.

This is surprisingly lighter than I thought it would be. This is the kind of lunch sandwich my Finnish grandmother would have made for us when my sib's and I were kids. Tasty and so simple! Thanks for posting, Sydney Mike. Made for 123HW tag game.
