Peach & Gouda Grilled Cheese

Before I start this post, let me first say that I was like, “What the heck it this!?!” when I first saw a recipe for a peach grilled cheese sandwich, so I know how you’re feeling.  If curiosity got you here, stick around and give this one a try.  You won’t regret it, I promise.

You will need: 1 ripe peach, 2 slices of your favorite bread (make sure it’s a sturdy bread), 1/4 cup Gouda cheese (shredded or sliced), butter for the bread(about 1 1/2-2 teaspoons), 1 skillet (cast iron is best), a couple knives and a spatula.Ingredients

Preheat your skillet over medium-low heat while building the sandwich.

The first thing you’re going to do is cut the peach in half by putting the knife into the peach (seen below) until it hits the pit; then roll the peach, slicing with the knife was you roll.cutting peach

To pit the peach, twist the halves you have cut and the top half should pop off.  Use your fingers or a spoon to remove the pit from the other half.pitted peach

Slice the peaches into thin slices.  Then we butter the bread.  Use high quality butter here for the best golden brown crust outside (yum!)buttered bread

Once the bread is buttered, place the buttered sides together.  Put half of the cheese onto the unbuttered side of the top slice, then place the peaches on top of the cheese.Peaches and Gouda

Put the other half of the cheese on top of the peaches.  The best way to transfer your built sandwich to the skillet is to pick up both slices of bread and slide the top slice into the skillet, buttered side down, then place the other slice of bread on top, buttered side up.In the skillet

Let the sandwich cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown and crispy on the bottom, then flip the sandwich with a spatula.  You may need to hold the top when flipping to keep the sandwich together.flipped

After the second side is nice and golden brown, pull the sandwich out of the skillet and cut in half.  cut sandwich
