Peach & Comté Grilled Cheese

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 4


  1. 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, softened
  2. 8 slices sourdough bread, 3/4-in. (2-cm) thick
  3. 4 tsp (20 mL) apricot jam
  4. 4 tsp (20 mL) grainy mustard
  5. 16 slices Comté or Swiss cheese (about 5 oz/150 g)
  6. 1 ripe peach, pitted and thinly sliced
  7. 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped toasted hazelnuts


  1. Spread butter on one side of bread slices. Mix jam and mustard; spread on non-buttered sides. Top 4 bread slices (on mustardy sides) with 2 slices cheese, peach, hazelnuts and remaining 2 slices cheese. Cap with remaining bread; buttered sides out. 
  2. Place sandwiches on grill preheated to medium. Cook, pressing down gently with spatula, 2 to 3 min. per side or until toasted and grill-marked. Turn off burner(s) directly under sandwiches and finish cooking over indirect heat for additional 3 to 5 min., or until cheese is melted.

Tip: Try grilling fruit and cheese combos such as apple and Cheddar, or provolone and pear.
