The buttery, sweet bread crisps up so beautifully and when paired with sweet and earthy fig jam, and creamy brie, the combo gets even more delicious. We've served this sandwich for breakfast with a side of bacon, for dessert with powdered sugar on top, and pretty much any time that we've had pound cake around.

With some spicy pepper jack cheese from Tillamook Cheese, a heaping spoonful of sweet and creamy apple butter, and a buttery and perfectly flaky croissant, this grilled cheese encompasses one of my favorite flavor combo’s sweet & spicy (and buttery) and it’s an excellent little treat that pairs nicely with an acidic Sauvignon Blanc.
Even though this recipe recommends that you grill the sandwich, this combination is also delicious as-is - whether that's a quick breakfast, a last minute dessert, or an unconventional lunch. You can even go to the next level with this and add some salty cured meat like prosciutto or speck.

Remember making funfetti cake as a little kid and licking the bowl until your tummy hurt? Well, now you can eat the cake mixture all you want without fear of getting sick from the raw egg! By mixing the pre-made cake batter with fresh ricotta, the flavors that you know and love are made into a completely edible mixture that is just as addicting as the real stuff.
You can eat this dip with your fingers, with some salty potato chips, or even with apple slices.
