nectarine jalapenño grilled cheese

This isn't your typical grilled cheese sandwich! Treat yourself to a seasonal nectarine jalapeño grilled cheese with queso fresco and basil for a sweet, spicy, melty, summery meal! (nut-free, vegetarian)


  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 nectarine, sliced thinly
  • 2 large basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp fresh jalapeno, diced
  • 3 tbsp queso fresco, crumbled


  1. Heat a cast iron skillet or non-stick skillet over medium-low heat.
  2. Drizzle one side of each slice of bread with olive oil. Place one slice of bread, oil side down, onto the skillet. Layer with mozzarella, nectarine slices, basil, jalapeno, and queso fresco. Top with other slice of bread, oil side out.
  3. Cook until bottom slice of bread is golden and cheese starts to melt. Flip and cook until cheese is melted and other slice of bread is golden. You may need to cover the skillet if the cheese is not melting quick enough.
  4. Remove from the pan and serve hot.
