Seeing how April is national Grilled Cheese month, I couldn’t let another day slip by without saluting one of my favorite things in the whole world…. the Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I usually whip up a grilled cheese sandwich when I want something super fast to eat that will whole heartedly satisfy my soul. This recipe here happens to be the one my man most enjoys. Heck, who am I kidding, I love it too!

Ingredients for grilled cheese:
French bread loaf
butter (room temperature)
It’s very simple. Start with two slices of french bread. Spread a 1/2 teaspoon of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Then on the opposite side spread with fig jam.
Next take a few thin slices of manchego and place atop fig jam side. I use a cheese slicer to attain the perfect thin-ness.
Now add a slice or two of prosciutto to the manchego and bring the two slice of bread together to make your sandwich. Butter sides should be on the outside.
In a non-stick pan over a medium high flame add sandwich and allow to crisp on each side for 4 to 5 minutes or until perfectly golden brown!
