For our hearty take on the English classic, the cucumber sandwich, we’re layering toasted baguette with crunchy cucumbers, hard-boiled egg, and a creamy spread of gouda cheese, mayo, pickled jalapeño, and zesty spices including paprika and cayenne pepper. A simple side salad gets a bright lift from lightly sweet persimmon, one of our favorite seasonal fruits.

instructions
Prepare the ingredients & marinate the cucumbers:
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the cucumbers:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a small pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the baguettes. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; roughly chop. Quarter, core, and thinly slice the persimmon. Combine in a large bowl. Thinly slice the cucumbers on an angle. Place in a bowl. Add the sugar and half the vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Toss to thoroughly coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Finely chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. 

Make the hard-boiled eggs:
2 Make the hard-boiled eggs:

While the cucumbers marinate, carefully add the eggs to the pot of boiling water. Cook 9 minutes. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs. Transfer to a cutting board. Thinly slice, then season with salt and pepper. 

Toast the baguettes:
3 Toast the baguettes:

Meanwhile, place the halved baguettes on a sheet pan, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil. Toast 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Transfer to a work surface.

Make the smoked gouda spread:
4 Make the smoked gouda spread:

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, grated cheese, half the spice blend (you will have extra), and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Finish & serve your dish:
5 Finish & serve your dish:

Assemble the sandwiches using the toasted baguettes, smoked gouda spread, marinated cucumbers (discarding any liquid), and sliced eggs. Carefully halve the sandwiches on an angle. To make the dressing, in a bowl, combine the mustard and remaining vinegar. Slowly whisk in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the dressing to the bowl of prepared lettuce and persimmon; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the sandwiches with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
