Ingredients

  • 8 slices of Texas toast

  • 4 tablespoon butter, melted

  • Tomato Peach Chutney

  • 4 slices thick sliced pepper bacon, cooked and halved

  • 6 ounce fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4-inch thick

  • 4 crisp leaves of butter lettuce, center vein removed

Tomato Peach Chutney

  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic

  • cup water, divided

  • 3 cup large cherry tomatoes

  • 2 medium peaches, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped (1 1/2 cups)

  • 2 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

Directions

  1. Lightly brush one side of each slice of toast with melted butter. Place four slices, buttered sides down, on a cutting board. Spread each with 1/4 cup Tomato Peach Chutney. Layer on bacon, mozzarella, and lettuce. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered sides up.

  2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Place sandwiches on heated pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden, turning once.

Tomato Peach Chutney

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the onion and garlic with 1/3 cup water for 5 minutes until softened. Add the tomatoes. Cook 5 to 7 minutes more until the skins break and they start to pop. Using a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon, gently smash the tomatoes, releasing their juice. Add peaches, remaining 1/3 cup water, vinegar, brown sugar, salt, and crushed red pepper. Bring just to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly, stirring occasionally.

*If desired, use a panini press for the sandwiches.

To Store

Place any remaining chutney in an airtight container. Cover and store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
