Brie and Fig Grilled Cheese with Rosemary Butter

Recipes, Sandwiches | May 11, 2016 | By

I am going to start this post by saying that I am warning you…..the following recipe will probably make you drool. This grilled cheese sandwich is amazingly, incredibly, over the top delicious. Think grilled cheeses are just for kids? Keep reading.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and when I saw it my mouth dropped open. Where has this been all my life and why didn’t I think of it? Brie cheese and fig jam is one of my favorite combinations. I love eating it on crackers, a spoon, with apple slices, basically anything. It is SO good! I have made it my mission to try all the varieties of Brie that Wegmans carries, because well why not? For this sandwich I used a mild brie but you can use any type you like.

Brie and Fig Jam Grilled Cheese

I have made this sandwich twice this week and as I am writing this post I really want to make it a third time. It is so easy to throw together. Just smear some fig jam on a slice of good quality bread, place sliced brie cheese on top of that and close with another bread slice. Combine softened butter  and as much rosemary as you like in a small bowl and then spread liberally on both sides of the sandwich. Fry up in a skillet until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove from the skillet and devour. I probably don’t have to say the devour part because after taking one bite of this you will probably inhale the whole thing in about 30 seconds.
