These were quite yummy! I did 3 slices of ham, 2 slices of turkey, and 1.5 slices of thicker cut provolone for each sandwich. I also used peach preserves instead of apricot. I sprinkled on a bit of dried minced onion top as well. All the ingredients went on a King's Hawaiian hamburger roll to help bring out the sweetness of the preserves. I think next time I might make a bit more sauce though because I felt it could use a little extra (personal preference). I might increase the Dijon like the reviewer Barbjack suggested. I would also like some kind of crunch in the sandwich, since it was pretty soft all around. Maybe apple slices? I wrapped each sandwich in foil, and placed it in the oven for about 6 minutes. Perfect quick meal for a busy weeknight dinner.

This was truly delicious. For those watching their weight I used fat free mayonaise, sugar free peach (didn't have apricot) preserves and increased theDijon mustard to 1 tablespoon for a bit more spice taste. Definitely a keeper.

I've made this lots of times. My husband asks for these toasty sandwiches! The sauce really makes it, though I sometimes cut back or eliminate the mayo. Yummy quick lunch or supper, and so easy!

This recipe was a really nice twist on typical ham & cheese melts. The apricot preserves were the perfect sweet compliment to the tang of the mustard and provided an interesting - in a good way - taste! Would definitely make again.

These sandwiches were SO good - I could eat the mayonnaise mixture by the spoonful! Will definitely make them again, and will try to think of other ways to use the sauce as well. . . Thanks, Steve!!
