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

MY REVIEW

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!

Haven't made this sandwich yet. While looking at the reviews I noticed one person said she didn't have cajun seasoning on hand. I didn't see any reference to that in the recipe. Have I missed something? Is the recipe complete?

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.

this is a great sandwich with lots of possibilities. I was frustrated because I didn't have cajun seasoning, but it still tasted great! Its a keeper. I can't wait to try it with the cajun, or creole, or even blackening. It was so good.

I thought it would be weird but I happened to have all the ingredients so I made it for my Teenage son..he asked for seconds.
