This recipe takes the classic grilled cheese sandwich and improves on it just a little bit.

What you need:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 slices of bakery Pullman bread
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1/2 pound sliced Swiss cheese, preferably Gruyère
  • 8 ounces thinly sliced ham
  • Dill pickle slices (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves

How to Make it:

  1. Butter each slice of bread and sprinkle with Parmigiano, pressing to help it adhere. Invert the slices onto a work surface, cheese side down.
  2. Top four of the slices with the Swiss cheese, ham, and pickles, if using.
  3. Mix the mustard and preserves and spread on the remaining 4 slices of bread.
  4. Close the sandwiches and griddle over moderate heat, turning, until golden-crisp on the outside and melted inside, about 3 minutes.
  5. Cut in half and serve right away.
