Ingredients
For the Peach  Bruschetta:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • Ground cayenne pepper to taste
  • 2 peaches pits removed and rough chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed, peeled, and minced
  • 1/4 c. fresh basil leaves, rough chopped
For the Grilled Cheese:
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 3 ounces Great Midwest® Chipotle Cheddar cheese, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 c. spinach leaves, rinsed and dried
Directions

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, black and cayenne peppers. Gently toss in the peaches and basil. Set aside while you prepare the grilled cheese.

Heat a large skillet with a well-fitting lid over medium-high heat. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the pan, and then arrange all four slices of bread in the pan. Fry for 1 minute, and flip. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the pan and arrange the cheese slices on each piece of bread. Edge heat down to medium and cover. Cook for 2–3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted nicely.

Remove the four bread slices to a plate. Divide the spinach between two of the slices and then spoon on 3 tablespoons of the bruschetta. Cover each one with one of the remaining slices. Cut each sandwich in half and serve immediately.
