Goat Cheese, Fig Jam, and Prosciutto
 Grilled Cheese Sandwich

April 26, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

I bought a jar of fig jam, hoping to make a grilled cheese sandwich that would take me back to YMCA day camp, eating Fig Newtons in my lunch. And I failed.

This grilled cheese doesn’t for a moment invoke memories of warm, squishy cookies, languishing in a brown bag through verse after verse of “Boom Chick-a Boom.” In fact, this grilled cheese is so fancy, I had to put earrings on before I ate it. Also pants.

    This sounds amazing! However I cannot find fig jam anywhere. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute?

    • Bake Up, Little Suzy says:

      You could try fresh or dried figs. If you find fresh figs, thinly slice them and lay them in the sandwich. If you have dried figs, drop them in boiling water for a couple minutes, drain, then whiz them up in the food processor and spread them on your sandwich. Let me know how it turns out!
