Gourmet Grilled Cheese with Peach Apricot Preserves

• Two slices of your favorite artisan bread

• 2 T butter, melted

• 2 ounces Great Midwest Cheddar cheese, sliced

• 1 ounce of peach apricot (or other favorite) preserves

• 2 thick slices of tomatoes

• Arugula

• 2 T mayonnaise

• 1/4 t garlic, minced

• Lemon juice

• Paprika

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, a splash of lemon juice and a dash of paprika. Set aside.

Using a pastry brush, butter each slice of bread on one side, and place the slices, buttered side down, on the work surface. Top each of these slices with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, arugula, the mayonnaise mixture and preserves. Top with the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.

Lightly butter and heat a griddle, heavy skillet or Panini press until hot. Place the sandwich in the skillet. Brown slowly on one side for 2 to 3 minutes before turning with a spatula and grilling the other side until brown and the cheese melts. It may be necessary to add a bit of butter to the skillet. Serve immediately.
