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!

What wonderful, gooey little morsels. The tang of the goat cheese is mellowed by the sweetness of the honey and fig preserves without being overpowered. But the basil and lemon zest provided unexpected little bursts of freshness that really made this sandwich for me! Fantastic light lunch with a field green salad. They would make lovely little appetizers if cut into small bites! Made for ZWT7.

I used my panini maker for this and it was a snap to make. Very nice for brunch. Made for team Witchin Kitchen for ZWT #7.

This was delicious!! I scaled it back to just make 1 sandwich for me (because otherwise, I would've ate all 4!). Made a couple little changes - I don't like raisins, so instead of cinnamon raisin bread, I used some sourdough and sprinkled some cinnamon on the filling when I put it on the bread! I also couldn't find fig preserves, so I just pureed a fig too. And since I was just making one, I added a little extra basil. I would make these for an appetizer and just cut them into bite size pieces!
