Brie Fig Grilled Cheese – Gourmet grilled cheese sandwich oozing with melted brie cheese and fig preserve nestled between buttery bread! It’s out-of-this-world good!

Brie Fig Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese and I go way back! Yes, it’s a relationship that’s endured for years and years! My mom worked but cooked every night. We lived ‘in the country’. There was no running to get take-out if she didn’t feel like cooking. However, she cooked almost every night. I don’t know how it evolved but on Sunday night after church, we had grilled cheese sandwiches.

I still love grilled cheese sandwiches and could eat one every day. However, I stepped away from the slice of processed cheese and make grilled cheese sandwiches with a variety of different cheeses. Grilled cheese is great with Pimento Cheese or even Cream Cheese like my Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich. and you’ll LOVE this Mozzarella sandwich!

I have taken your favorite childhood traditional grilled cheese sandwich up about ten-fold into a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich filled with brie cheese and a slightly sweet fig jam. I especially like this combination of a mellow, creamy texture, and taste of brie. Plus, fig preserves add a nice sweetness and the crunch from grilling makes it the ideal grilled cheese in my opinion.

Preheat griddle over medium heat. (I just love this griddle skillet.) Generously add butter to one side of both slices of bread. On one of the bread slices, add fig preserves or any spreads to the opposite side of the butter. Place the bread butter-side-down onto skillet bottom and add brie cheese. Place the other slice of bread that is already buttered on top, with the butter-side-up. Grill until lightly browned and with a large spatula, carefully flip over to brown the other side. Flip over again if the cheese has not yet melted.

And, there you go. The result is a finger linkin’, outrageous meal in minutes!

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I, too, have walked away from heavily processed cheeses, so this grilled cheese sandwich is right up my alley. It tasted so good and was very easy to make.
