grilled cheese with smoked gouda, fig preserves, and fresh basil

Being in the midst of packing for camp, Sunday School teacher meeting at 3, and church/fellowship shortly thereafter, I am in a bit of a rush today, so I'm foregoing the pics of the food this time. :) But I had to share this wonderful grilled cheese recipe that I absolutely loved, and considered myself very chic to make. hehe!

Smoked Gouda with Fig Preserves and Fresh Basil, on Buttered Whole Wheat Bread! Woohoo! (yes, that's pretty much the recipe. lol)

I like the smoky flavor of the cheese against the mild sweetness of the figs, and of course the occasional peppery bite from the basil just keeps things spicy. And, as Dillon said after tasting a bite, "I like the aftertaste." Aftertaste is always important. :)


  1. Sounds absolutely sublime. Isn't cheese a fantastic thing?!

  2. I love grilled cheese, and some varieties sound good. The figs came in with a vengeance this year, and homemade fig preserves can be had at a nearby farm. I can't wait to give this a try!
