Grilled Havarti and Tomato on Kalamata Olive Bread

I made this sandwich for my kids’ lunch and couldn’t help myself from sneaking a bite… it was so good! I loved the creamy cheese with the crisp and tangy bread and the sweet tomatoes – it was a wonderful combination of flavors and textures. Both of my kids loved the sandwich and gobbled it right up.

Grilled Havarti and Tomato on Kalamata Olive Bread:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
 
  • 2 slices of leftover kalamata olive bread
  • 2 slices of Havarti cheese
  • 2 slices of tomato
  • Butter

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spread the butter on one side of each piece of bread. Layer the bread (on the non buttered side) with one slice of cheese, next add the tomatoes followed by the last slice of cheese then top it with the remaining piece of bread. Place the sandwich (butter side down) into the hot skillet and cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    Havarti has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember, I already love this sandwich! And I'm just starting to see tomatoes on my vines, it shouldn't be long! I might have to slip a few basil leaves in here too!

    Love this. And with fresh tomatoes about to hit our farmer's markets, I can't wait to give this a try. Love the harvarti for the cheese selection.

    This looks so good – I really love the idea of using olive bread for some extra flavor/texture. I actually work with Dofino cheese which makes a great havarti. We’ve got some nice sandwich recipes on our site, and for our next recipe, I think we should take some inspiration from here and play with different kinds of bread!
