1. Butter one side of a fresh slice of bread and lay it, butter side down, in a well preheated (medium-low heat) nonstick skillet.
2. Top with one or two slices of the spicy havarti cheese. Pile pulled pork evenly on top of the cheese, gently press the pork into the cheese.
3. Place the pineapple slice(s) on top of the pork, and top another slice or two of cheese, if desired. Top with remaining slice of buttered bread, butter side up.
4. When the bottom bread slice reaches the desired browned color, gently but firmly press down on the top of the sandwich with your spatula, and then flip it over, being careful not to allow the pork shreds to fall out. Cook until the other side has reached the desired color and the interior is hot throughout. Repeat for additional servings.
