Peaches, Cheese and Bacon….
Well, Summer is here. And when it’s Hot… Who in the world wants to eat? Especially when just a Margarita and a snack would hold you over for another day.
I got a few soft Peaches. I got some Bacon (RIGHT ! – Who Doesn’t) a few pretzel rolls. AND I’ve got some AWESOME Smoked Gouda Cheese – I got it at Costco of all places.
Just put it all together and WOW !
Grilled Gouda, Peach and Bacon Sami’s !!
The score ? It’s Grilled (+), It’s got Cheese (+) and it’s got Bacon (+++) !!
AND – Just as a final seal of approval. The “Official Taster” (My dog Henry), wagged his tail with such force, I though someone was knocking on my door every time he would hit a cupboard with it.
AND – NO! I didn’t give him a Margarita, because I distinctly remember the last time.
Peach, Bacon + Gouda Grilled Cheese
Sliders on Pretzel Bread
YIELD: MAKES 8 SLIDERS
2 pretzel baguettes, each sliced into 8 equal rounds
8 ounces gouda cheese, sliced into 16 squares
4 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and cut into pieces
2 peaches, sliced
3-4 tablespoons butter
Assemble sliders by placing a slice of cheese on top of the bread, followed by bacon and peaches, then another slice of cheese on top to act as “glue.” Heat a skillet or griddle over medium-low heat, butter both outsides of the bread and place on skillet, cooking for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cheese is melty. Serve immediately!
Note: you can obviously use regular baguettes, or even a loaf of pretzel bread or pretzel buns.
I found this one on “How Sweet It Is.” Check them out !!!
