Oh, this is SO GOOD! The sauce is amazingly tasty. I had a hot Dijon that has a bit of horseradish in it & it was the perfect compliment to the sweet jelly and tangy orange juice. I used regular eggs and 2% milk, but otherwise followed the recipe. I made DH's on white bread & should have photographed his, but didn't think of it before he'd dug in. :) So the photo is of this sandwich on a dark rye bread. Which was very tasty! I'm sure I've eaten jarlsberg cheese when I was a teen & ate a lot of meals with my DH's Norwegian grandparents, but don't remember it. I really enjoyed the flavor of it in this sandwich. Thanks for sharing, Jan! :) Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :D
