Georgia Peach

Created by:

When it comes to flavor, everything is just peachy. Layer upon layer of deliciousness make The Georgia Peach anything but ordinary. It boasts honey-glazed peaches, roasted pork tenderloin, and melted Wisconsin blue cheese housed between two toasted pieces of wheat bread. How’s that for southern hospitality?

COOKING DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Place tenderloin on foil-lined baking sheet and season with salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; roast 40-45 minutes or until cooked through (145˚F on meat thermometer). Set aside.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, mix coriander, remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper, peaches, honey, wine, ginger and peach preserves. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer until thickened into a sauce.

Slice roasted tenderloin into 18 slices. For each sandwich, butter 1 side of 2 bread slices. Spread unbuttered side of 1 bread slice with peach sauce and top with 3 tenderloin slices. Sprinkle with blue cheese and top with additional sauce. Top with other bread slice, buttered-side-up. Heat skillet over medium and add sandwich. Grill until bottom slice is browned; flip to brown other side. Repeat for remaining sandwiches. Halve sandwiches and serve.
