Gourmet Grilled Brie and Fig Sandwich


So. What says comfort food more than grilled cheese and tomato soup? Nothing! Not to us, anyhow. So tonight I kind of threw health out the window and decided to make a gourmet comfort food dinner. The star of the show was this Grilled Brie and Fig sandwich. It was so… I don’t even have words for it. Rich, amazing, delectable, sweet, fantastic… just wonderful. I will be making these again, but not anytime too soon, for the sake of our arteries!

Gourmet Grilled Brie and Fig Sandwich

Makes 1 sandwich


  • 2 slices of bread. I used an artisan whole wheat bread
  • a few slices of brie (enough to cover once slice of bread)
  • 1/2 tbs (apx) fig spread
  • fresh or dried rosemary (fresh is preferable, but since I didn’t have any I used a Rosa Maria blend which is dried rosemary and garlic)
  • 1 pat of butter


  1. Put the brie on one slice of bread.
  2. Spread fig spread on the other slice
  3. Put together
  4. Put butter and rosemary in skillet on MEDIUM (do not put on high. It will burn the rosemary and your bread will get hot and crispy before the cheese melts)
  5. Cook the sandwich on each side until golden brown. If your bread gets done before the cheese is melted, just put them in a warm oven for a few minutes.

    (sorry it’s a bit blurred. Glass  plates make it a bit hard…)

Ta da! My stomach hurts (in a good way), and I hope yours does too. Bon Appetite!
