Toasted Peach Sandwich

"It's too hot to bake and I wanted something sweet. Taking my cue from the Recipe #223644 that I had left and some peaches that needed using up, I built a fun and tasty dessert sandwich. Brioche or challah bread would probably work well as would other soft fruits. Experiment with what you have on hand. The results might surprise you!"

Questions & Replies

  1. Have you tried this with a sweet bread like Hawaiian, Portuguese sweet bread, or even a good thick raisin bread? I would think it might add a whole different dimension to it, though it sounds lovely as is and I fully intend to try it as soon as peaches are in season!


  1. Love the fresh fruit and experimenting with herbs of different kinds-can take it chutney direction with Indian spices or even basil, mint or fennel, and ginger, nutmeg cinnamon combo as seen in some cobblers. Fun to experiment. Good as written too. Thank You.
  2. this is such a fun idea! i had a slightly squashed peach to get rid of and what a great way to do it! i was out of nutmeg, instead i used pumpkin pie spice. i have seen this done with apple, peaches are way better because you don't have to cook then first. this would also be a great idea for a dessert camping pie or in a toasted sandwich maker. thanks for sharing SusieQusie!
  3. I didn't really know what to expect with this recipe, but it sounded good so I tried it. SO glad I did, it's amazing!! What a fantastic sandwich idea!! It's slightly crunchy, soft and sweet all at once. It's just fantastic!
