It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! What better way to celebrate than with a gruyere grilled cheese sandwich loaded with arugula, tomatoes, avocado and fig butter for a hint of sweetness?
Cook time: 6 minutes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 slices whole wheat bread
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 tablespoons fig butter
- 1 cup arugula
- 2 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 2 avocados, halved, seeded, peeled and thinly sliced
- 2 cups shredded gruyere
1. Heat olive oil in a grill pan over medium-high heat.
2. Spread 1/2 tablespoon butter over 1 side of each bread slice. Turn the slices over and spread 1/2 tablespoon fig butter on each slice. Top with arugula, tomatoes, avocado and gruyere, and then top with another slice of bread, buttered side up, to create a sandwich. Repeat with remaining slices of bread to make 4 sandwiches.
3. Place sandwich in pan and grill, flipping once, until bread is golden and filling is heated through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
