Ingredients

  • 3 Ounces fresh ricotta cheese
  • 3 Ounces shaved mortadella
  • 1 Teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 Ounces sliced hot cherry peppers
  • 2 Teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 2 slices of sourdough bread

Directions

Mix the ricotta cheese with the mustard and spread it on the bread. Layer the shaved Mortadella and the peppers on the cheese and close to make the sandwich. Brush the outside of the bread with the mayonnaise and then grill on the griddle until browned on the outside. Slice on the diagonal and serve.
 

Ricotta Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Ricotta Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.

Ricotta Cheese Wine Pairing

Rich white wines and full-bodied reds go well with most cheeses and cheese-based dishes. Some specific recommendations: chardonnay or pinot blanc with goat cheese; dry chenin blanc with earthy cheeses; rosé or sercial madeira with melted-cheese appetizers; port with blue cheese (especially stilton); amontillado sherry or syrah/shiraz with strong cheeses; olooros or palo cortado sherry with creamy cheeses; merlot or carménère with mild cheeses; cabernet sauvignon, malbec, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, or petite sirah with cheddar- or gouda-type cheeses; nero d'avola with full-flavored Spanish or Italian cheeses; sangiovese with dishes using parmigiano-reggiano and similar cheeses.
