What a great and easy meal to make for more than just breakfast. I used orange zest instead of lemon both because I didn't have a fresh lemon and fig just seems to shout for orange.
Perfect! The entire family was happy.
Used whole grain sprouted bread but am looking forward to upping this even more towards dessert with some raisin bread soon!
I liked the suggestion of coating the bread with egg and cooking first. May try that some time, too.
I thought the honey did add a fair amount of flavor, however, I always enjoy plain goat cheese with some type of fruit preserve on it, so I would agree that if you want to limit the sugar you might be able to go plain rather then mix in the honey and have it still be delish (especially if you use raisin bread).
Even without the basil (which I didn't have), this sandwich was like a wonderful novel. I didn't want it to be gone. Delicious!
I followed the recipe exactly the first time and it was delicious. The second time, I wanted a little more protein and less fat so I dipped the bread in whipped egg whites and precooked. I skipped the honey because I didn't really notice it the first time and used 1/2 ounce of goat cheese per sandwich instead of 1 ounce. Still really delicious!
I simplified this recipe by spreading the goat cheese on the cinnamon bread/toast and added the fig preserves and fresh basil. Amazingly delicious!
Oh my gosh! I was a little skeptical at first, but this is SOOOOO YUMMY!!! I want to make one every single day! Good little vegetarian sandwich :)
These are amazing. They are much sweeter than I expected -- similar to stuffed french toast -- but soooo good. We have had this for dinner on several occasions (don't judge). We have also substituted molasses for the honey when we were out -- still amazing (but it changes the taste quite a bit). I love the lemon taste, so I add significantly more zest to mine (as well as more basil). Simply delicious.
This was very yummy, but much SWEETER than I was expecting! It tasted like dessert! Definitely needs something savory as a compliment.
AMAZING!!! I made these sandwiches today for brunch and they were so easy and a big hit! The flavors are amazing together and will definitely be making them again in the future. Used an Orange/fig preserve instead.
these were easy to make and had great flavor. My husband was skeptical at first but then admitted they were worth making again. I think all the flavors (b/w the cinnamon raisin bread, goat cheese, honey, fig and basil) result in a really complex taste. I liked them with a little more basil than the recipe calls for.
Good, but a little too sweet for me. Made for dinner with grilled sweet potatoes. Will try for brunch next time.
Delicious! The first time I made this, I couldn't find fig preserves, so I used apple jelly. I've made it many times since and have used a variety of preserves (raspberry, cherry, blackberry). Sometimes I skip the lemon, sometimes I skip the basil. It's always delicious! I usually serve it for dinner with baked sweet potato fries.
i served this to my parents when they were visiting - mom and dad loved it, my husband and i thought it was ok. way too many flavors for my taste. the lemon was overpowering (maybe put too much zest in?).
This sandwich was very easy to make, and every bite was delicious. I made a large batch and I had one for lunch the next day. Even refrigerated, these sandwiches will blow you away.
Each and every bite was PURE HEAVEN!!
This sandwich is incredible. I served it for breakfast with canteloupe wedges and am looking forward to having it again and again. I followed the recipe exactly and it was just perfect.
I was looking for something different for breakfast and I stumbled upon this recipe...I have fallen in love and I drool on the mornings that I know I will be making this. The combination of the goat cheese and fig preserves is divine, and the lemon zest gives the combo just a touch of freshness. I don't always have basil on hand, but it is still dynamite without it. Try it - you will not be disappointed.
delicious and super easy! great served alongside butternut squash soup; also taste good by adding about 1/4 cup toasted walnuts to the cheese mixture.
Great treat! Very rich with the goat cheese. Had trouble finding fig perserves, but finally discovered whole foods carried it. The basil gives it a fresh hint, we only used half the recommended amount though. It would make a great breakfast/brunch element since it is sweet.
I just made this for the third time. I followed the recipe the first time and loved the grilled sandwiches. I made this a second time as a spread, mixing together the goat cheese, fig jam, honey and basil. I kept it in the freezer and doled out a spoonful at a time to spread on toasted raisin-cinnamon bread. I sent the third batch to college with my daughter. Itâs such an easy treat, and itâs especially yummy as a dip for apple slices. My only complaint: finding a low cal, high fiber raisin bread to keep in line with the nutritional information as listed. I wish the recipe had quoted the tested brand.
I made these for Valentine's breakfast for my honey and he LOVED them!!! I didn't tell him was was in them....the combo of goat cheese and basil would probably scare him off, but the flavors were amazing together!! I made 2 sandwiches on plain raisin bread and 2 on whole grain....I loved the texture of the whole grain because it was firmer and easier to grill...although hard to find the bread unless you bake it yourself. I will be making these again and again and again...what a beautiful yet simple and delicious breakfast/brunch idea!! Loved it!!
These were so good. I did not make these but I ate one at my Cooking Light supper club. We all loved these!
Just about the best sandwich...not counting a full-caloried Monte Cristo.....I'd make this again and again. I did; however, make it into three sandwiches instead of 4, which made the inside a little fuller and richer.
