Total Time20 mins
Servings: 2 sandwiches


  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 4 slices whole-grain bread such as Eureka! Organic Bread
  • 4 tablespoons Spinach Basil Pesto
  • 4 slices Arla Dofino® Creamy Havarti or 4 ounces, grated
  • 2/3 cup sliced artichoke hearts from jar or can, drained
  • Sea salt for sprinkling on sandwich


  • Butter the outsides of the bread with butter. Spread the insides of the bread slices evenly with pesto. Put a slice of Havarti on the bottom piece of bread, add artichoke hearts, and top with another slice of Havarti. Place the other piece of bread on top, creating a sandwich.
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle pan over medium-low heat and place the sandwiches butter side down. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt and the bread is golden brown. Carefully flip the sandwich over and cook for an additional about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with sea salt. Cut sandwiches in half and serve immediately.
  • Note-for gluten-free, use gluten-free bread.
