Oh sweet little piece of deliciousness. This sandwich has become one of our absolute favorites. Oprah’s Favorite Grilled Cheese with havarti, tomato, basil, honey and whole wheat bread. We eat it at least once a week. 🙂 Oprah’s favorite grilled cheese is our favorite too.
Everyone we’ve ever made these for has been so hesitant about the ingredients list, whole wheat bread, havarti cheese, fresh basil, garden tomatoes, and honey. Yes, honey. And trust me it’s exactly what the sandwich needs. It’s like a little twist on the classic caprese flavors.
You guys are going to devour this. The honey makes this sandwich. There is such wonderful flavor with the sweet honey, the creaminess of the cheese and then the basil cuts through and oh my gosh!!!!
Try this out and let me know how much you love it!
