Description

Glamorous Gourmet Grilled Cheese, this sandwich has come a long way from cheese slices and soft sliced bread.

Imagine a rustic French traditional bread, buttery Brie, creamy Gorgonzola, fresh figs, and beautiful prosciutto all fried up in a cast pan to get melted and golden. Consequently, only one word to describe it. INSANE!


Ingredients

  • 4 1/4 inch-thick slices of a good crunchy crust rustic bread
  • 50 g prosciutto di Parma
  • A couple of pats of salted organic butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin cold pressed olive oil
  • Some fresh sage leaves
  • 275 g brie cheese
  • 200 g Gorgonzola cheese
  • 4 fresh figs washed and sliced in half

Instructions

  1. Drizzle in olive oil and place butter into cast iron pan on low heat. Toss in sage leaves and let slowly warm.
  2. Slice the brie into nice slices and take half and layer on one slice of bread.
  3. Place some prosciutto on top of the brie, then nestle 4 halves of the fresh figs into the prosciutto.
  4. Next, break up the Gorgonzola and place it on another slice of bread and press it in.
  5. This is the fun step, slap the two halves together and press firmly.
  6. Into the cast iron pan they go and turn heat to about a low to medium. You want these to golden slowly and get that heat into the cheese.
  7. These take about 10 minutes a side turning the sandwiches frequently and then at the end covering the pan with a lid and turn the heat off. After about 2 minutes, these are ready to eat.

Enjoy!


Notes

  1. You can use any cheese or fruit you want. Apples, pineapple, use your own creativity to make something fun and delicious.
  2. In the grilling process make sure to turn frequently so that they don’t burn, but also to get the heat into the middle quicker ensuring that cheese will melt.
  3. The cheese quantity is purely indicative. Just add on the bread as much cheese you want.
