Oh, yes I did.

Ooey gooey grilled cheese. In. Your. Face.

There are few things better in life, if you ask me. I even went ahead and made this one a little fancy.

Layered with fig butter, two types of cheese, and crisp apple slices, makes for a home run sandwich!

Grilled Cheese with Fig Butter and Apple

* Yields 2 sandwiches


* 2 tablespoons fig butter
* 4 slices of rustic multigrain bread
* 4 thin apple slices
* 1/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese
* 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
* 1 tablespoon butter


1) Spread 1 tablespoon of fig butter on 1 slice of bread. Top with 2 sliced apple, then with enough cheese to cover the bread. Take another piece of bread and put on top to make a sandwich. Repeat to make second sandwich.

2) Heat nonstick pan over medium heat and add butter until melted. Place sandwiches in heated pan and cook over medium/low heat, about 4-5 minutes on each side until cheese is melted and bread is crisp.

3) Serve immediately!

And Enjoy!

You can thank me later.
