Fig and Brie Panini with Prosciutto

Fig and Brie Panini with Prosciutto


Summer is in full swing and we are just spoilt for choice. Not only are the markets filled with a ton of locally produced fruits and vegetables but they are also filled with great imports. In particular, I have been enjoying the figs lately. Mostly I have just been snacking on them but when I found some extra brie in my fridge I decided to do something more. After discovering that jams and preserves went well in grilled cheese sandwiches one of the first jams that I tried in a grilled cheese was a fig jam and I really enjoyed it. I was thinking that a grilled brie and fresh fig sandwich would also be great. This time I decided to beef (or pork in this case) the sandwich up a bit with some tasty prosciutto. The brie and fig panini turned out really well. The brie melted nicely and the sandwich was nice and ooey and gooey and good with every bite trailing strings of melted brie. The sweet fig, brie and prosciutto were a great combination and I practically inhaled the sandwich. Luckily I have enough of everything to make a few more of them.

Cakebrain said...

Don't tell anybody, but I just stole and ate a ripe green fig hanging into my back alley from my neighbour's fig tree. They don't seem to eat figs. They're letting them fall and rot on the ground! If only I can reach some top branches, I can give your recipe a try! It looks great!

Christina said...

I'm so jealous of your figs!! I need to hunt some down!

I have only cooked with figs a couple times, but they are delicious. I made a pork tenderloin with a fig sauce that has become a favorite of my clients.

Thanks for the recipe!

mycookinghut said...

This looks lovely!! All my fav ingredients!

Joanne said...

I think this may be my favorite sandwich of yours yet! Figs are some of my most favorite things. I wonder how this will taste with dried figs when the fresh ones go out of season...

Anncoo said...

WOW! Look at the colors...good combo:D

biz319 said...

I've never had a fig, but now I want one!

The Mediocre Cook said...

Kevin, You always take amazing photos and this one just might (slim chance) make me try a fig. Something about their look just doesn't do it for me... of course I have no idea what kind of taste I am missing out on.

Cyn said...

This looks so, so very tasty. Fruit and cheese, figs and prosciutto -- and did I say cheese?
And it's beautiful too!
I can't wait to try it. I may not be able to get a hold of fresh figs, but maybe I can have a version of your sandwich if I make a spread out of some dried figs ...

pinkstripes said...

omg. omg. I'm wordless right now. Man, I just made pizza with figs for the first time. I'll have to try this soon. Very soon.

Pam said...

I can't even begin to imagine what this must taste like!

Jenn said...

OMG that sounds amazing! What a clever combination of flavors!

Kevin said...

Anja: Do to space restrictions in my small kitchen I do not have a panini press. I have been using a grill pan and pressing down on the sandwich to flatten the paninis and get some nice grill marks on them.

Heather said...

Nice - I just became your 1000th follower - congrats! I'm pretty new to blogging and have a mere 40 so most impressive that you have so many!

This looks like a great recipe - I'm hosting an iron chef party this weekend with figs as the secret ingredient - maybe a panini will show up!!

Oh good lord. This entire sandwich would be in my mouth so fast, I probably wouldn't even taste it.

I ate my first ones within the past two days. I hope to get the pictures & blog post up within the next day or two, so be sure and check it out!
