Pesto, Artichoke, and Havarti Grilled Cheese

This grilled cheese sandwich is made with spinach basil pesto, artichoke hearts, and creamy Havarti cheese. It is always a hit!

  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 4 slices whole-grain bread (such as Eureka! Organic Bread)
  • 4 tablespoons spinach basil pesto
  • 4 Arla® Dofino® Creamy Havarti Slices (or 4 ounces, grated)
  • 2/3 cup sliced artichoke hearts
  • sea salt for sprinkling on sandwich

Instructions

Butter the outsides of the bread with butter. Spread the insides of the bread slices evenly with pesto. Put a slice of Havarti on the bottom piece of bread, add artichoke hearts, and top with another slice of Havarti. Place the other piece of bread on top, creating a sandwich. Heat a large skillet or griddle pan over medium-low heat and place the sandwiches butter side down. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt and the bread is golden brown. Carefully flip the sandwich over and cook for an additional about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with sea salt. Cut sandwiches in half and serve immediately
