Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl combine apricots and enough boiling water to cover. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain. Stir in almonds and green onions.

  • Spread four of the bread slices with apricot preserves. Top with apricot mixture, cheese, and pepper. Add the remaining four bread slices. Lightly coat outsides of sandwiches with cooking spray.

  • Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches, half at a time if necessary, in skillet. Weight down with a heavy skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bread is toasted. Turn sandwiches, weight down again, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread is toasted and filling is heated through.


To toast nuts, preheat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until light brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice.
