I absolutely adore grilled cheese sandwiches. I fancy myself a bit of a grilled cheese connoisseur. My love of grilled cheese started as a child, but has definitely continued into adulthood.

I am a bit of a picky eater, especially when it comes to seafood, but the many seafood restaurants of South Carolina make a mean grilled cheese for a vegetarian option for this girl! I am known to order a large glass of Cabernet with a grilled cheese and french fries at a seafood restaurant. Not kidding!

Let’s face it, you’re never too old for a great grilled cheese, especially when you spice it up with some gourmet ingredients and add some fresh peach slices. This is my ultimate favorite grilled cheese!

Ingredients

Lots of Cheese

But what type? For this recipe, I use white cheddar cheese. I buy Cabot’s Vermont White Cheddar Cheese in a block and thinly slice the cheese myself. White cheddar cheese pairs so well with the other ingredients in this recipe and makes for a great gooey grilled cheese.

Swiss cheese is a good substitute or you can use both Swiss and white cheddar cheese!

Sliced Bread

My favorite bread to use for any sandwich is white mountain bread. My Publix grocery store makes the best fresh mountain bread both, white and wheat varieties. Sour dough bread is a great alternative.

Fresh Peach

When you think of grilled cheese, I’m sure peach slices are not the first thing you think of, but trust me, it tastes amazing and adds a great freshness and fruitiness to this sandwich.

Piquillo Peppers

I use pickled piquillo peppers for this recipe and several others. I keep a large jar in my refrigerator from Sam’s Club. They look like Gene Simmons’ tongue! I use 4 peppers in this peach grilled cheese recipe.

Shallot

Shallot pairs great with the ingredients of this peach grilled cheese. You will saute the onion with the peppers and garlic separately. Then, stuff the grilled cheese with this filling, among other ingredients.

To prep, thinly slice the shallot.

Garlic

For the white cheddar peach grilled cheese, I use 2 cloves of fresh garlic roughly chopped.

Seasonings

I use just sea salt and ground black pepper to season the peppers and onions to stuff in this tempting white peach grilled cheese.

To grease the pan

I use both butter and olive oil when cooking this peach grilled cheese. I start with melting about 2 slices of butter in a large, preheated non stick pan. Then, add a little olive oil in a spray bottle when flipping the sandwich.

How to Make the White Peach Grilled Cheese

Cooking the filling

Heat a large, non-stick pan on medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the sliced shallots to the pan and sauté for about 1 minute. Then, add the garlic and piquillo peppers. Cook for about 1-2 minutes, until the onions are soft.

Great with a side salad!

I love serving this white cheddar peach grilled cheese sandwich with a side salad of spring lettuce, topped with a homemade dressing of 2 TBSP of dijon mustard and 2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar (season with salt and pepper), and garnished with sliced radishes and crispy onions.
