Apricot Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Serves 1

2 slices sturdy rye bread
Homemade apricot compote
Sharp cheddar cheese, sliced 1/8 inch thick
Smoked Gouda cheese, sliced 1/8 inch thick
2 tbsp Butter

1. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a non-stick pan over med-low heat. Spread a layer of the apricot compote onto one slice of the bread. Cover with one layer of the smoked gouda, then another layer of sharp cheddar. Cap it off with the second slice of bread.

2. Lay it in the pan, and press down for 3-4 mins with a panini press, or just use a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Turn up the heat a little to make sure the bread is crisped well on the outside.

3. Add the remaining butter and flip the sandwich over to toast on the other side, for another 2-3 mins. Then take it out, devour in under 5 mins, and go back to the kitchen to make another one. Don't deny yourself this precious gem, folks.
