Fresh-Fig Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 loaf ciabatta bread, ends trimmed, sliced in half horizontally
  2. 1/4 cup store-bought fig jam
  3. 3/4 pound Fontina cheese, sliced
  4. 1/3 pound thinly sliced Black Forest ham
  5. 8 to 10 fresh figs, thinly sliced lengthwise
  6. 1 tablespoon oil

Directions

  1. Heat a griddle over medium heat.
  2. Spread cut sides of bread with fig jam. On the bottom half of the bread, layer 1/2 the cheese, then the ham, the figs and the remaining cheese. Enclose with the top half of the bread. Brush with oil.
  3. Place on griddle or in a nonstick skillet, and weight top of sandwich with a heavy skillet or a foil-lined brick. Cook until bottom is golden, about 4 minutes. Flip sandwich over, and repeat with opposite side. Cut crosswise into 6 to 8 pieces; serve immediately.

Serve 4.
