This grown up grilled cheese is stuffed with summer stone fruit, smoked gouda and spicy arugula. A great weekend lunch or dinner!
Brush each piece of bread with olive oil on one side.
Let cheese melt slightly, then layer nectarines on one slice of bread. Top with a few leaves of arugula.
Flip the other slice of bread over on top of the nectarines and arugula to create a sandwich.
I used olive bread for this sandwich, but sourdough, french, or rye bread would be great alternatives as well. I like to make grilled cheese in a pan, but a panini press or grill would be another option.
Be sure to use ripe nectarines for this grilled cheese! The sweet juiciness really makes the sandwich!
Use your favorite dairy free melting cheese or skip the cheese and make this sandwich in a panini press.
Try this sandwich with your favorite gluten free bread.
Looking to add a little meat or protein? Leftover shredded chicken breast makes a great grilled cheese filling, or tuck some cured meat such as prosciutto or coppa.
Don't have smoked gouda? Fontina and taleggio are great substitutions. They're both great melting cheeses and have a strong flavor. Peaches or apricots are also great in the sandwich if you don't have a ripe nectarine.
