  • 2 slices sandwich bread
  • 2 tablespoons (enough to lightly cover both slices of bread) fig jam
  • 3 slices (enough to cover one slice of bread) smoked gouda
  • 1 tablespoon (enough to thinly cover two slices of bread) softened butter


  1. Preheat a small skillet over medium heat.
  2. Lay out your two slices of bread and spread a thin layer of fig jam on each slice. Add a layer of cheese and put the lid on your sandwich. Spread a thin layer of softened butter on the outside of the top slice of bread, and place the sandwich, butter side down in your hot pan. Add butter to the other piece of bread that's now on top, and cook on each side for three or four minutes or until your sandwich is a brown and crispy as you like.
  3. Slice your sandwich down the middle or in triangles to share.
