You can use any type of fruit spread or preserves in this sandwich: fig, peach, or whatever strikes your fancy. For an easy, delicious appetizer, quarter the sandwiches and serve on a platter with sliced, tart green apples.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
2 teaspoons salted butter, softened
8 slices French bread, 1/4 inch thick
2-4 tablespoons all-fruit apricot spread or preserves, to taste
4 ounces havarti cheese, sliced
1 large avocado, sliced
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat (or use an electric frying pan set on high). Butter four bread slices on one side only. Put slices, butter-side down, on a clean surface. Spread 1/2–1 tablespoon apricot fruit spread or preserves in a thin layer on each slice. Top with cheese and layer with avocado slices. Cover with remaining bread; butter tops.
Place two sandwiches in the pan and cook for 2–3 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.
