From the Test Kitchen

These flavorful sandwiches highlight layers of smoky gouda and melty fontina cheese, sweet fig spread, and tender sautéed peppers—deliciously brought together inside crunchy toasted sourdough. For a burst of summery flavor, we’re rounding out the dish with a side salad of soft butter lettuce and juicy peach marinated with just a touch of vinegar.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & marinate the peach:
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the peach:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the gouda and fontina. Combine in a bowl. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; roughly chop the leaves. Halve and pit the peach; thinly slice. In a large bowl, combine the sliced peach, rice vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the peppers:
2 Cook the peppers:

While the peach marinates, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the balsamic vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the peppers are coated. Turn off the heat.

Assemble the sandwiches:
3 Assemble the sandwiches:

4 Cook the sandwiches:

Rinse and wipe out the pan used to cook the peppers. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the sandwiches. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping). Transfer to a cutting board and immediately season with salt. Carefully halve the cooked sandwiches on an angle. 

Make the salad & serve your dish:
5 Make the salad & serve your dish:
