Grilled Cheese with Figs & Honey

Grilled Cheese with Figs & Honey

I spend all summer waiting for figs to come in season. When they finally turned up at the market, I could not resist putting some sweet, fresh figs onto my grilled cheese sandwich. The best thing about this “recipe” is that it’s not a recipe at all. You can use any bread you like, any soft or creamy cheese, and you can slice, mince, or grill up the figs before adding them to your sandwich (fig jam also works really well).

I don’t have a panini press, but if you do, feel free to grill up your sandwich to get those beautiful grill marks. Alternatively, you can just press your sandwich down over a grill pan for a toasted and crunchy bite!

For a low carb option, hold the bread and just grill up a whole wheel of brie or Camembert and top with figs and generous drizzle of honey.

  1. I want to devour this grilled cheese sandwich! My neighbors just planted a fig tree so in 3 years, I can use those figs to make this sandwich :) In the meantime, I guess I’ll have to go buy my figs…

  2. I also love figs and wait for the end of summer to use them as long as I can get them. And I’ve made grilled cheese with fig jam, but fresh figs and grilled cheese! OH YUM, this is tomorrow’s lunch. Thanks.
