Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut potato into ½ inch thick slices, transfer to a baking sheet, and toss with 2 tsp (4 tsp) olive oil, oregano, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast fries until browned and crisp in places, 18 to 20 minutes. TIP: Rotate the baking sheet halfway through baking to ensure even browning.
Finely chop the pickled jalapeños. Add chopped jalapeños, just half the Vegenaise, and a pinch of pepper to a small bowl. Stir the hot pepper mayo. TIP: If you’re sensitive to spice, omit or use less pickled jalapeño.
Drain and roughly chop ½ cup (1 cup) artichoke hearts. Mince the garlic. Add 1 tsp (2 tsp) olive oil to a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped artichoke hearts and cook until crispy in places, 5 to 6 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add baby spinach, stir to combine, and transfer mixture to a bowl. Wipe the skillet clean and set aside, off heat. TIP: Keep the remaining artichoke hearts for your own use.
To assemble the sandwiches, place 2 (4) slices of sourdough bread on a flat surface and spread just ½ tbsp Vegenaise on each slice. Flip slices over and spread hot pepper mayo on the other side. Add spinach artichoke mixture and mozzarella, and close sandwiches with remaining sourdough bread slices. Spread remaining Vegenaise on top of each sandwich.
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sandwiches and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. TIP: If the bread browns before the cheese has melted, lower the heat.
Cut the spinach artichoke grilled cheese sandwiches in half and serve with oregano fries. Enjoy!
