My kids approve of the classic grilled cheese sandwich, but if I offered them a bacon, fig and gruyere grilled cheese, they would definitely run away from me screaming. This is probably a grilled cheese recipes for adults only. And that's ok, more for me after all!
Cheddar or American cheese typically serves as the base for a grilled cheese sandwich. However, I love experimenting with different cheeses for truly spectacular grilled cheeses. The nutty, rich and gooey flavor of gruyere pairs wonderfully with fruits. I think fig complements gruyere the best. To add the finishing touch, the salty, crispy bacon adds a delectable bite to the sandwich's mouthful.
