Quick tip: Though this recipe calls for Swiss or gruyère cheese, you can certainly use your preference of cheese! A melt-friendly cheese like cheddar, Monterey jack, American, pepper jack, or provolone gets my vote. But, you do you, boo!
Don’t have honey in your pantry? Use maple syrup! No poppy seeds? Skip ’em! This recipe is perfectly adaptable for what you’ve got.
For serving on the side: A leafy green salad tossed with oil and vinegar is lovely. Putting these out for brunch? Add a fruit salad and a bowl of fluffy scrambled eggs on the side. I’ll bring the mimosas!
For making ahead: You can assemble these sandwiches up to one day ahead, cover and refrigerate. Go ahead and cook as instructed, once you’re ready to serve. These only take about 7-9 minutes to toast up in your oven, so get ready for quick, cheesy golden goodness in no time!
