A savory sandwich made with roasted Anaheim Peppers, gooey American cheese with garlic artisan bread.
Recipe type: Sandwich
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 sandwiches
  • 1 Anaheim Pepper
  • 4 slices garlic flavored batard bread (about ½" slices)
  • 4 oz. Cheddar Cheese, mild in flavor, divided
  • 3 tbsp. butter, divided
  1. Place your pepper on a grill or over a gas burner. Cook until the skin is charred and soft, turning the pepper to cook evenly. Place the pepper in a ziplock bag, and seal for 30 minutes. The steam will make the skin come off. After 30 minutes, gently peel the skin on the peppers. I used a paper towel to get the excess skin off. Whatever you do, do not run the pepper under water. Cut the pepper in half and gently scrap the skin off. Than cut the pepper into strips.
  2. Take 2 tablespoons of butter and place in a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter for about 20 seconds or so. Set aside.
  3. In a medium skillet with a lid, set the burner to medium low heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter. Let the butter melt.
  4. Meanwhile brush one side of the sliced bread with butter, place that side down onto the skillet. Top the bread with pepper slices and 2 ounces of cheese. Top the cheese with a slice of bread and butter the outer side of the bread. Do the same for the remaining ingredients. Place lid over skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Flip the sandwich and cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. Take the sandwich out of the skillet and serve.
Instead of garlic batard bread you can always use a plain batard bread or a heavy sandwich bread. You want a bread that will hold the peppers without getting soggy.
