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.

Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie

Chicken, Main Dishes, Recipes | May 5, 2016 | By

It’s Cinco de Mayo! It’s the perfect day for me to bring you this new recipe! I am so thankful this Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie has come into my life. It doesn’t require a lot of work or fancy ingredients. You can throw it together in minutes and customize it to your tastes.

Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie

This week while doing my grocery shopping, I came across something amazing, something inventive, something that changes everything (being dramatic, I love food). Maybe I am really behind on this (okay I probably am) BUT I found tomato and basil flavored flour tortillas! Yes! Did you know about this? Why have I never tried these before? Oh my word! I love these and only have two left, so I am about to panic. These will take your quesadilla game or anything tortilla game to a whole new level. The crust of this pie was supposed to be a regular flour tortilla but that wasn’t happening after I found these. It really added a whole nother level of flavor.

This quesadilla pie is so creamy and full of flavor. For my filling I used shredded chicken, cilantro, cheddar cheese, and chopped jalapenos. The jalapeno added a nice smokiness but not to much heat. I was hoping I had a can of green chilies in the pantry but no such luck. Those would have been amazing in this pie.

This makes a great weeknight meal because it takes 30 minutes start to finish and it’s something the whole family will love. So give this one a try. I know it won’t let you down.
