Pumpernickel sandwich with Jarlsberg and peppers Recipe

This is a super easy yet elegant recipe for a quick meal or snack.  Pumpernickel Rye is extremely healthy due to its high fiber and calcium content.  I like its hearty nutty flavor contrasted with the smooth sweetness of cheese.  Pumpernickel is also nice with Peanut Butter!  You could substitute any cheese  for this quick bite, even an herb butter spread with tomato is fun and easy.
