I made this delicious grilled sandwich a little differently than a traditional grilled cheese. I used a "grilling cheese" and pan fried each piece separately. It's not vegan, light or healthy in anyway but it is gluten-free thanks to some delicious gluten-free sandwich bread (my favorite is Udi's). If you eat gluten-free you should definitely check out their products.
The fresh figs are the perfect sweet accompaniment to the salty cheese and butter soaked bread. The sandwich would probably be really good with fig jam on it too.
