2 slices bread, about 1/2-inch thick
sliced Gruyere cheese
thinly sliced Granny Smith apple
fig jam
unsalted butter, softened
Layer desired amount cheese, then apples, then more cheese on one slice of bread. Spread the fig jam on the other slice and place it on top of cheese.

Liberally spread top of bread with butter, and then flip sandwich over and spread butter on other side.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. When hot, place sandwich in pan. Let cook until bottom of bread is golden brown and crisp. Turn sandwich over and repeat for other side.

Notes: Cook sandwich slowly to ensure the cheese will melt completely. When adding other ingredients into sandwich, place cheese on both sides of the bread to ensure the sandwich holds together better when cooked.
