Swiss, Fig Jam and Spinach Sandwiches
I am not a jam eater. I have spent 23+ years enjoying sandwiches and biscuits jam free and I fully intended to keep it that way. Then I met Dave who has a preference for choosing odd jams and preserves for his peanut butter sandwiches. The first peanut butter sandwich he gave me included cherry preserves, I was hooked. We already had this fig jam on hand for peanut butter + jam concoctions, if you don't, I promise it is worth the investment.

|To make the sandwiches, melt butter in a sauce pan and add the bread slices.|
Spread fig jam onto half.
|Add the cheese sauce to all slices of bread.|
And then add spinach to as many pieces as desired.
|We made an egg over-easy for one sandwich and scrambled eggs for the other.|
|Once the sandwiches are golden brown on the outside, remove from the skillet and add the eggs.|
|Put the pieces together.|
|And then enjoy.|
