A Brie and Fig Preserve Grilled Cheese sandwich that tastes decadent and is easy to pull together.
This ain’t ya mamas grilled cheese. This little decadent grilled cheese was inspired by fresh Figs and the Fig Preserve I made using my extra figs.
Simple and delicious a grilled cheese that is a real treat. Melted Brie cheese homemade Fig preserved sandwiched between grilled french bread; yum!
I made up a batch of sandwiches packaged them up in parchment paper and brought them with me when I met friends to go for a walk. I thought they would be a great treat to share when we finished up our walk and another excuse to stay and talk some more. You know us girls always can find more to talk about.
