Fig & Honey Basil Grilled Cheese

A couple weeks ago, I came across this huge list of different types of grilled cheese sandwiches you could make¬† and was rather intrigued. This is weird on a whole host of levels because I’m really not a big fan of cheese. In moderation, sure, but only with the more mild sorts, and even then, I can only stomach small amounts. (Yeah, I’m probably somewhat lactose-intolerant. Who needs you anyway, lactase!? >:[ )

The recipe was adapted from here! As per usual, I adapted it to whatever we had in the kitchen.

Fig & Honey Basil Grilled Cheese

 

Ingredients:
-1 tsp honey
-lemon zest
-1/2 oz goat cheese
-1 slice whole wheat bread
-2 dried figs, halved
-3 basil leaves, thinly sliced

Instructions:
1) Lightly toast the bread. Spread goat cheese on one side and honey on the other. Add lemon zest, figs and basil leaves.
2) Cut sandwich in half and stick it on the foreman grill for 2-3 minutes.
3) Serve!


This (and I think the next couple weeks’ worth) week’s Spill It, Sundays is on showcasing past blog posts/recipes! :] I’m a big fan of this idea because this blog was pretty much a private blog for so many years, there are tons of recipes that have gotten lost in the archives (until I [a] finish with boards and get on self-hosting this blog, and [b] figure out a good way to archive my recipes/have an awesome recipe index).
