1. Spread butter on bread slices. Turn over and spread the other side of one slice with goat cheese.

2. Heat skillet and place goat cheese slice butter-side-down in pan. Layer tomato, arugula, prosciutto and havarti on top of the goat cheese. Top with 2nd slice of bread, butter-side-up).

    I didn’t have any rosemary bread, but I had some Italian Herbs I got online at Juliet Mae Spices; it made the sandwitch.

    Do you have any suggestions on a cheese other than goat cheese? I’m not the biggest fan of goat cheese but everything else looks amazingly appetizing! I am going to have to try this next week!

    This was amazing! I don’t want to eat a reg grilled cheese again! I used cream cheese instead of goat. My hubs absolutely love it!
