My mom and I are at the lake house and we had the best sandwiches for lunch! Her paninis are always legendary but when she asked if I wanted peach slices with my sandwich, I suggested putting some inside the sandwich and voila, the Turkey Peach Panini was born.
This combination is out of this world. You’ve got juicy peaches, smokey cheese, and sweetness from the fig spread. We used a honey fig spread that was absolutely delicious. I always have some sort of fig spread in my fridge for cheese board emergencies. It’s a great product to have on hand for paninis too!
I have to give a shoutout to this awesome bread. This baguette is from LaCasita Bakeshop in Dallas and is so good! It’s thicker than your average grocery store baguette, which I love.
I just have to add that earlier this summer my parents and I went in together to get a box of Georgia peaches from a peach truck and I was beyond excited because Georgia is famous for their peaches, but I have to say: Georgia peaches don’t hold a candle to Texas peaches. If you’re ever in Texas in the summertime please do yourself a favor and get yourself peach everything. They’re huge, juicy, and are truly the best peaches I’ve ever had. And for heaven’s sake, if you’re ever in Texas and see a peach stand on the side of the road, pull over immediately because it doesn’t get better than that.
Turkey Peach Panini
A ripe peach, peeled and sliced
- Preheat a panini maker, griddler, or grill pan.
- Slice baguette to desired sandwich size then slice in half. Spread softened butter on the outside of the sandwich (both top and bottom).
- Layer turkey slices, smoke gouda slices, and peach slices on the bottom of the sandwich. Spread fig spread on the inside of the top of the sandwich. Set the top bread on top of the rest of the sandwich. Set on a panini maker and gently push the top down. Only press down a tiny bit at a time so the peaches don’t fall out! Grill until the cheese is melted and the bread is nice and golden. Garnish with peach slices on a toothpick if desired!
