Grilled Cheese: Havarti Dill and Cucumber on Rye

By Macki West |

My kid was begging me for a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich, but I had another idea.

It’s been forever since I’ve made one so she has never had the opportunity to give it a try. It was an unexpected hit. Find out about it after the jump…

Havarti Dill and Cucumber on Rye Recipe

4 slices of rye bread

Havarti with dill

English cucumber

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon water

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon dill

Slice about 1/3 of the cucumber into very thin slices. Place in a bowl and add the vinegar, water, sugar and dill. Stir to combine and set aside. Slice enough havarti for a double layer of cheese on each sandwich. Spray one side of each piece of bread with cooking spray, the lay on a griddle. Place one layer of cheese on two sliced of bread, followed by a layer of cucumbers, then another layer of cheese. Top each with another slice of bread and grill over medium for 3-5 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and bread is browning. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Slice in half and serve. Makes 2 whole sandwiches.
