- 6 slices of bread of your choice (we’ve used cornbread)
- olive oil
- 12 slices of bacon
- 100 gram gorgonzola or any other blue cheese
- 4 ripe figs
- optional: balsamic vinegar
Kitchen equipment needed
- silicone kitchen brush
- grill pan
- cutting board & chef’s knife
- oven tray lined with parchment paper
Preparation — 5 minutes
PRE-HEAT the oven to 190 degrees celsius or 375 degrees fahrenheit.
HEAT the grill pan on high heat. BRUSH the slices of bread with a thin layer of olive oil, using the silicone kitchen brush. GRILL them on both sides for about 1 to 2 minutes.
Now grill the bacon slices while the grill pan is still hot. This will only take a few minutes, make sure to flip them over before they turn too dark.
PLACE the slices of grilled bread on the oven tray and divide the slices of bacon over the slices of bread. We made half of the sandwiches without bacon. CRUMBLE and divide the blue cheese over the sandwiches, the layer shouldn’t be too thick.
Making the figs, bacon and blue cheese grilled sandwich — 5 minutes
PLACE the sandwiches in the oven until the cheese melts, that will take about 5 minutes. CUT the figs in slices and divide over the sandwiches. DRIZZLE some honey and balsamic vinegar over the top if you like and enjoy! You can also cut these sandwiches in smaller pieces and serve them as a snack.
