Fig and Goat Cheese Grilled Sandwiches
2 tbsp. Honey
1/4 tsp lemon zest
2 tbsp. Varick Fig Preserve
1 (40z) package of goat cheese or chevre
8 slices of cinnamon-raisin bread
2 tsp sliced (or chiffonade) fresh basil
Cooking spray or unsalted butter
Combine the honey, lemon zest, and goat cheese until well blended and smooth. (I actually used a goat cheese with honey already added to it. But of course adding honey is an easy option.)
Layer the raisin bread with the goat cheese mixture, fig preserves, and basil.
Grill the sandwiches on a Panini machine or on a medium skillet in butter or with cooking spray until the bread is brown and crispy.
Dig in until you are goat cheese and fig preserved out.
