Brie, Fig, and Arugula Grilled Cheese Recipe
Brie is having a real moment of appreciation right now for its rich, creamy texture that only gets better when warmed to its best gooey state. This grilled cheese gives you all of that yummy cheese with the complementing flavors of figs and arugula. It tastes fresh, natural, and decadent for any weeknight. It’s like wrapping your favorite warmed cheese appetizer into a perfectly crisped sandwich. To achieve that perfectly golden brown sandwich you dream of, you need to coat the outer sides of your grilled cheese with mayonnaise (or butter). It will make sure you avoid a burnt, dry sandwich, which never hits the spot. Make an even coating on each piece of bread that’s not too thick, but don’t be afraid to really spread it on there! It’ll be the key to that crispy, browned finish. Make this a complete meal with a lightly dressed salad. We love to use sourdough bread for this recipe, but your farmers’ market might have other great fresh-baked options. This is a great option for a fun girls’ night in or for an easy weeknight dinner.
