As we get into spring and warmer weather, I like to make lighter dishes and meals that are seasonal and have fresh ingredients.  I recently saw a picture of a sandwich on Instagram and immediately wanted to recreate it.  It’s a little salty, a little sweet, creamy, and crisp all wrapped in a baguette.  It’s a Grilled Peach Sandwich with Prosciutto and Arugula and it’s what dreams are made of.  And it’s the right time of year because peaches are going to start being in season and available at your local Festival Foods.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by baking the baguette according to package instructions.  I like to buy the take-and-bake breads from the bakery and use those.  Set aside to let the bread cool then slice in half to create 2 sandwiches (or 3 or 4 depending on how long your baguette is).  Then slice in half, lengthwise, to create sandwiches.

Slice the peach and add to a bowl with a little olive oil then toss to coat.  Heat a grill pan over medium heat.  Lightly brush or spray with oil, add the peaches, and grill on each side for about 2 minutes or until you have nice grill marks.  Remove the peaches to a plate.

Brush the bread lightly with olive oil (on the cut side) and place face down on the grill pan to toast the bread.

Add the arugula to a mixing bowl with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and toss to coat.

That’s it for prep work!  You are now ready to assemble your sandwiches.  Evenly divide the prosciutto between each sandwich, top with fresh sliced mozzarella (or substitute with burrata), drizzle with a balsamic glaze, add the peaches, and top with a large handful of arugula.  Add the other half of the bread and you are ready to serve.

You can slice each sandwich in half before serving if you prefer.  It is slightly easier to hold the sandwich halves 😊 Enjoy!

The recipe can be found here.

I love the combination of ingredients included in the sandwich.  It’s light, refreshing, and great for a picnic or anytime you are craving something fresh.  You can easily double or triple the recipe to make more sandwiches or slice them smaller to serve slider style at a party.

Happy Cooking!
