Grilled cheese is one of the most satisfying comfort foods. But sometimes, you crave something a bit more sophisticated than American cheese and Wonder bread. Here's a fresh idea.
How to Make a Fancy Grilled Cheese:
Step 1: Heat a skillet over medium heat.
Step 2: Butter one slice of thick-cut sourdough bread and place in the pan.
Step 3: Spread on fig jam and build with sharp cheddar, ham and one more layer of cheddar.
Step 4: Top with a second slice of buttered bread.
Step 5: Squish the sandwich with the bottom end of a smaller pan. (The secret to crispiness!)
Step 6: Flip and squish again.
Mmm, melty perfection.
