Sweet, subtle, and a little bit fancy, we’ve dressed up the classic grilled cheese sandwich with fresh figs and basil, then topped it off with honey and sesame seeds for a gourmet taste the equally beautiful as it is delicious.
No. 1 | Butter one side of each slice of bread. Top one slice with 1/2 cup of grated cheese. Arrange half the fig slices on top, then 3 to 4 basil leaves. Sprinkle with an additional 1/2 cup of cheese and top with another slice of bread, buttered side facing out. Repeat with the second sandwich.
No. 2 | Heat a cast-iron skillet on medium heat and add butter. Once melted, lay the sandwiches in the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Flip and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes. If the cheese hasn’t completely melted, flip again for another minute or two until the cheese is melted.
No. 3 | Once the grilled cheese sandwiches are cooked, remove them from the pan and slice them in half. Drizzle each sandwich with 2 teaspoons of honey and sprinkle with a pinch of sesame seeds.
