    Sharon123's Note:

    These are just as good for breakfast as they are for supper! Mixing honey with the goat cheese mades it easy to spread on the cinnamon raisin bread. Adapted from Cooking Light magazine(June 2004). An African/Middle Eastern influenced recipe.

      Absolutely DELIGHTFUL! Not too sweet and the goat cheese wasn't overpowering. What a unique sandwich - the basil really had me wondering... I couldn't find fig preserves so I pureed some sunmaid figs. Thank you for sharing this outstanding recipe!

      Delicious! I really like the honey and lemon zest in the goat cheese, and combined with fig - perfect. I love the idea of putting it all in a sandwich and grilling it! I used sourdough bread, so I didn't get the additional flavors from the cinnamon raisin bread, but I enjoyed it anyway! I served with fresh strawberries on the side, since they're in season and I have an abundance of them.

      OMGoodness; I just found a new 'bad for me' lunch! YUM! I loved the basil; I didn't expect it to taste so complimentary! I just loved this! It is going into the 'keeper' file, for sure! Thanks for sharing, Sharon!
