White Stilton and Cranberry Breakfast
 Grilled Cheese with Fig Marmalade

Who says grilled cheese sandwiches are just for lunch? 
This is a quick and sweet way to start your day with an always
 classic pairing of fruit and cheese.

And since we did a "Grilled Cheese Series" last summer,
I will link those varieties below as well :)

What you will need:
8 slices of your favorite bread, sliced
8 ounces white Stilton with cranberries, sliced
4 ripe figs, optional
4 tablespoons fig marmalade
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons raw sugar
1 tablespoon cardamom, ground
Griddle or frying pan

Let's get cooking:
In a small bowl mix sugar and cardamom together.
Butter one side of 4 slices of bread.
Spread jam on one side of the remaining bread slices.
Have all other ingredients ready, then heat griddle or heavy
 bottom pan on medium until hot.
 Place buttered side down slices of bread, layer on cheese and fig slices.
Place remaining slices of bread on top, jam side down.
Brush top sliced with butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture.
Cook until cheese has melted and bread is golden brown,
 or to desired doneness.

Serve open faced or closed
Serves 4
