fyi lauren & megan let’s make these but with like some cream cheese also and it can be like those guava and cheese empanadas!
Havarti Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Spicy Guava Jam
I’ll admit that I cheated a little and bought canned jam, but I was hungry and was
daydreaming of the guava paste I’d had with a cheese plate at Dumont last week… The Goya guava jam I used is vegetarian - pectin is the thickening agent.
2 slices of good Bread
1/4 cup Guava Jam
Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
Sliced Havarti Cheese (I used a little less than 1/4 of a pound)
1-2 Tbsp Butter
In a bowl, combine guava jam and cayenne pepper. Taste as you add cayenne until it reaches the desired level of spiciness. Spread a generous amount of jam on one side of both pieces of bread. Layer with havarti cheese. Put sandwich together and spread outside sides of bread with butter. Grill each side to golden brown on medium/high heat in a saute or griddle. Remove from heat, cool slightly and cut.
