  • Hot Honey recipe link above

How to Prepare:

  1. Wash and dry the fresh figs. Cut to remove any remaining stem and slice each in half, vertically.
  2. Start by assembling each sandwich. Use two slices of bread, 4 slices of cheese, and 2-3 fig halves per sandwich. Assemble so the figs are in the innermost layer between 2 slices of cheese on each side. See the image above.
  3. If you want hot honey inside the sandwich, you can also spread some on one of the inner sides of a slice of the bread. Bring the sandwich layers together. Butter both of the outsides of the bread and place on a heated flat griddle pan.
  4. Use medium-heat and a flat griddle pan to cook the sandwiches. Cook for 3 minutes each side, using a spatula to flip it over after the first side is done and golden brown.
  5. Transfer to a cutting board to rest about a minute. This allows the cheese to set so it does not ooze out as soon as you try and cut it.
  6. Cut each sandwich in half and put on a plate. Drizzle with hot honey or put it on the side as a dip. Enjoy!
