  • 2 slices bread – any substantial bread will do, but regular sandwich bread will be too soft
  • Sliced havarti cheese
  • Thinly sliced tomato
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Heat grill to medium. Assemble sandwiches by layering cheese, then tomato, then another layer of cheese.
  2. Brush outside of bread with olive oil and grind pepper on top.
  3. Place sandwich on grill and weight down with something heavy (a brick wrapped in foil, a heavy frying pan or one of those big cans of tomatoes will all work!
  4. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Serve at once.
