Teleme, Orange, and Marjoram on Potato Bread

“If the Teleme is too creamy to grate, you can slice it.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces teleme cheese, coarsely grated (may substitute mozzarella or Monterey Jack)
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh marjoram
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 8 slices potato bread (1/4 inch thick)
  • 6 slices tomatoes, cut in half (1/4 inch thick)


  1. In a small bowl, toss the cheese, orange peel, and marjoram together.
  2. Butter 1 side of each slice of bread; place 4 slices on work surface with buttered side down.
  3. Place the cheese mixture evenly over the 4 slices, followed by the tomato slices.
  4. Place the remaining 4 bread slices on top, buttered side up.
  5. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  6. Put the sandwiches in the skillet (do this in batches, if needed), cover, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until undersides are golden brown and cheese has begun to melt.
  7. Uncover, turn the sandwiches using a spatula, pressing firmly to flatten them slightly.
  8. Cover and cook 2 minutes or until undersides are golden brown.
  9. Turn again, press with the spatula and cook for 30 seconds, or until the cheese has melted completely; serve immediately.
