Casual Friday: Dinner in 15 Minutes!

It’s time for another Casual Friday Menu! This grilled cheese sandwich is such a delight. Perfectly crispy grilled artisan bread, melted brie and a touch of sweet fig jam. Yes that is what I said, fig. I know, I know, people are a little weird about figs so you are going to have to trust me on this one! Figs are delicious, and the proof is in the pudding, or in this case The Brie and Fig Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

The Recipe: Brie and Fig Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

Tips and what you will need: To make perfectly crispy bread, start heat on high and then turn to low after placing the sandwich on the pan. I use a panini press pan to grill sandwiches. You can find Adriatic Fig Spread at fine grocery stores or have it delivered to your door! (affiliate links) For more grilled cheese sandwich recipes click here and here.
