This havarti grilled cheese is the most summery, cheesy sandwich with perfectly sweet balsamic peaches, prosciutto, fresh basil, and a honey drizzle.


Servings: 2 sandwiches

  • 2 1/2-3 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1-2 peaches, sliced (depending on the size of the peaches)
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 pieces sourdough bread
  • 1 cup havarti, shredded, divided
  • 4 pieces prosciutto
  • honey, to drizzle
  • black pepper
  • basil, chopped


  1. In a medium skillet, melt 1/2 to 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add sliced peaches and saute for 3-4 minutes until peaches begin to soften but aren't yet mushy. Lightly salt, reduce heat to low, and add balsamic vinegar. Cook until balsamic vinegar is reduced, then remove from heat.
  2. Top one of the slices of sourdough with 1/4 cup of the havarti then top with half of the balsamic peaches. Top with 2 slices of prosciutto, then drizzle with honey and sprinkle with black pepper. Top with basil then another 1/4 cup havarti. Repeat with remaining sandwich.
  3. In a large skillet, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add grilled cheeses, pressing down lightly, and cook for 3-5 minutes until golden. Flip and continue cooking until cheese is melted and bottom piece is golden. Serve immediately, with additional fresh basil and honey if desired.
