READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Sharon123

Grilled cheese that will melt in your mouth! For a delicious appetizer, quarter the sandwiches and serve on a platter with sliced, tart green apples! Adapted from Delicious Living magazine and changed. Feel free to try fig, peach, or pineapple preserves instead of the apricot! Yum!

DELICIOUS! I used regular white wheat bread & Brummel & Brown spread that has yogurt in it to save on fat & calories. We added sliced deli ham at the request of my boyfriend & cut out the preserves. The cream cheese got all gooey & sealed all the wonderful flavors together. A keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons salted butter, softened
  • 8 slices whole wheat french bread, 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened (or mayonnaise)
  • 2 -4 tablespoons apricot fruit spread, to taste (or preserves)
  • 4 ounces havarti cheese, sliced
  • 1 large avocado, sliced


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Butter 4 bread slices on one side. Place slices, butter-side down, on a clean work surface. Spread 1 tbls. cream cheese(or mayonnaise) on each slice. Now spread 1/2 to 1 tbls. fruit spread in a thin layer on top of cream cheese. Top with Havarti cheese and layer with avocado slices. Cover with remaining bread; butter tops.
  2. Place 2 sandwiches in the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until bread is golden brown and cheese has begun to melt. Flip sandwiches over, pressing down slightly with a spatula. Continue cooking until golden brown. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
