For the final installment in my “sophisticated substitutes for traditional camp fire food” series I turned a plain jane cold cut sandwich into 2 warm and cheesy sandwiches of delight!
I started with a savory sandwich made with everyone’s favorite ingredient, buffalo chicken, and spiced it up with some pepper jack cheese! Next, I made a sweet treat combining honey drizzled figs with goat cheese for a unique spin on a grilled cheese sandwich!
Ingredients (makes 6 sandwiches)
- 2 cups fresh figs (chopped)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 lemon (zested)
- 1 loaf french bread (cut into 12 slices)
- 6 oz goat cheese
- 6 tbsp butter
Start by adding the figs to a small mixing bowl.
Drizzle the honey on top then zest one lemon into the honey figs.
Now it’s time to prepare the sandwiches.
Start by spreading 1/2 tbsp of butter on one side of each slice of bread then spread the other side with 1/2 tbsp of goat cheese.
Next, add about 1/4 cup of the fig mixture on top of half the slices of bread.
Place in skillet over medium-high heat and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
The result is a trip to sweet cheesy delicious town!
