It’s Friday! Thank goodness. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m never sad when Friday arrives.

Fridays in April so far have been all about grilled cheese and this Friday is no different. Today’s grilled cheese is more of a sweet than a savory grilled cheese like you may be used to.

Have you tried Honey Goat Cheese yet? Ohmygod. I could eat this stuff with a spoon, speaking hypothetically of course. It is so creamy and wonderful…it may be my new favorite cheese. You can find it at most grocery stores now and it comes in a large size at Trader Joe’s, so that’s where I get it now that my addiction is real.

When I started out with Grilled Cheese Month, I knew I’d want to do something sweet, dessert-like, over the top at some point during April. There were lots of choices, but when it got down to the wire, I knew I had to incorporate my favorite appetizer combo into a grilled cheese and I am not sorry I did.

Wow! This recipe is awesome. So awesome in fact, that I found myself scarfing it as soon as the photo session was complete…no matter if it was 4:30 and I was totally ruining dinner. One bite turned into 4, 5, 6 and then I had to make myself step away. I urge you…make this! Make it for breakfast, make it for dessert, make it in mini form for appetizers…

To make the grilled cheeses, start with two slices of white bread. I used a rustic loaf from my local grocery store that was sliced thin. I didn’t want too much bread on this grilled cheese. It’s a little more delicate than thick slices.

Spread 1 oz of goat cheese on one slice of the bread. Spoon a tablespoon of the fig jam on top of the goat cheese and spread it ever so slightly. Any fig jam will work, but this stuff is my fave! I’ve seen it at Whole Foods, gourmet shops, and even in the regular grocery store. Not a fan of fig jam? This recipe would also be delicious with raspberry or strawberry jam instead.

Thinly slice some brie cheese and place that on top of the fig jam.

Now place the other slice of bread on top. Melt some butter in the pan. You know the drill. Allow the first side to get nice and golden, then add some more butter and flip it again so all of cheese gets melty and gooey and it’s ready to eat.

Follow the same directions for additional sandwiches. Keep them warm in the oven while you make the other sandwiches.
