Ingredients

  • 2 large slices of good quality bread (I used thick cut brioche bread.)
  • 1 thin slice Swiss, Brie, Muenster or Gruyere Cheese (I used Swiss.)
  • 1/2 peach, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 slices Bayonne Ham
  • Balsamic glaze, optional
  • Unsalted butter for spreading on the sandwich bread

Instructions

  • Slice peaches and set aside.
  • Spread butter on one side of bread. Lay butter side down on panini press or heated skillet. Top this piece with peaches. Drizzle balsamic glaze over peaches, if using. Add a slice of cheese and then a few slices of ham over the cheese. Spread butter on the other slice of bread and place, butter side up on top of ham.
  • Cook until cheese is melted. If bread is browning too quickly, reduce heat to low.
  • Serve immediately, as it is best served warm.

Notes

  • The thick cut brioche bread was wonderful, but any artisan bread will work just fine. Sourdough bread would be another great choice.
  • Use any favorite cheese! You can even spread a little cream cheese or ricotta on the bread before layering on the peaches. Another option is to use two different cheese varieties for a complexity of flavors.
  • Other soft fruit types would work. Try nectarines or plums. And if you don’t happen to have fresh fruit available. You could spread a thick layer of jam or jelly on the sandwich.
