Toasty and tasty, these hefty sandwiches boast a touch of sweetness from the raisins and jalapeno jelly. The creamy Havarti could be subbed out for brick cheese. —Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas

"Felt adventurous making this sandwich as it was unlike anything we usually eat. My husband didn't care for it as he's a "plain" food kind of guy. However, my son and I thought it was fabulous! Will make it again when the hubster won't be around for dinner. :)"

"I had lots of left over turkey from Thanksgiving and thought of this sandwich/ everyone loved them/used swiss cheese on it - had just bought some hot pepper jelly at a craft sale!"

"This sandwich was a nice change of pace. I substituted Habanero jelly since that is what I had on hand, it was spicy hot and delicious. I use my George Foreman grill to make any kind of sandwich melt instead of a pan and it comes out just like a panini press with the ridges and everything. No need to butter the slices..which can rip the tender bread...just run your butter over the hot grill plates, stick your sandwich in & voila...crispy, crunchy, buttery & delicious...plus almost zero clean up."

"Outstanding! My family gave these rave reviews. The only changes I made were: I put the jelly on the inside of BOTH slices of bread and I used sharp white cheddar cheese instead of the Havarti. We will definitely be making these again!"
