Grilled Cheese sandwiches are a hit with children and adults alike, so it’s no surprise that there’s an entire month dedicated to celebrating them. April is National Grilled Cheese Month, and I’m sharing with you one of my favourite grilled cheese recipes made with Arla Dofino Jalapeno Havarti cheese.

Arla Dofino offers a range of family-friendly cheese types, such as Havarti and Gouda. All Arla Dofino cheeses are free of added hormones and preservatives, and crafted with quality, natural ingredients. These are the reasons I’m happy to feed my children Arla Donfino cheeses…but I love them for myself too.

I crafted a grilled cheese sandwich with Jalapeno Havarti, but it can be made with any variety of their havarti cheeses. My son loves the dill flavour and the garden vegetable is popular with all of my family members. This particular sandwich was just for me and my husband.
