  • About

Make these sandwiches on light rye, white or light whole wheat bread. The cumin seeds are just right with the mustard and cheese. They go especially well with tomato soups.


  • 2 slices of bread
  • cup grated jarlsberg, Swiss or Gruyère cheese


Toast the bread on one side in a broiler or toaster oven. Work the cheese, butter, mustard, and cumin seeds together and spread the mixture over the untoasted sides of the bread. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Grind plenty of pepper on top, cut into halves or finger-sized slices, and serve hot.
