    Absolutely delicious. The flavors go together so well for an unexpected combination. I used a crusty, mild sour dough because I had that, otherwise made as directed.

    So delicious! I substituted Swiss cheese for Havarti. Thank you, Deborah, for sharing this recipe.

    These creamy sandwiches were a delightful surprise. I didn't change the recipe at all, made them in a panini maker and they were delicious! Served mine with tomato soup.

    I agree with the previous review! These sandwiches are excellent!!! Going to make these for the 2nd time tonight. When I made these I substituted sliced Italian bread for the French and added some bacon slices for a little extra pizzaz.

    Love, love, loved these!!! Had to use peach preserves but that didn't seem to make a difference. Definitely a keeper!
