Black Forest Ham, Cheese and Fig Jam Sandwich



Crunchy, salty, sweet, earthy and so incredibly satisfying is how to describe this sandwich. Last weekend I made fig jam and was thinking of creative ways to use it. While driving home from work, my creative thoughts were spinning in my head and this sandwich popped up. I thought it would be simple yet full of flavor. It actually exceeded my expectations. I could have certainly eaten more than one, but refrained. My husband did eat two and couldn’t believe how tasty they were. We actually had those two nights in a row for dinner.

Slice ciabatta bread about ¾ inches thick. Spread about 2 teaspoons of fig jam onto the slice. Add three slices of the ham and top with a half of a slice of jarlsburg cheese. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay the sandwiches onto a cookie baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes.

  5. It's so nice to see this. I always seem to do something like this when we travel and my husband thinks I'm weird. I always add jam to ham and cheese to balance flavors out. I think I got it from my grandmother.

    Of course, the jam is never fancy like yours here but it's completely the same idea. Love that you posted this. I'll have to "borrow" your fig jam recipe. Thanks!
