I intended to post this way back when figs were in still in season. Per usual, things didn’t go as planned.
If, by chance, you happen to find a fresh fig or two at your grocery store, please make this for breakfast. It’s divine. It’s also a no brainer, which is what I often look for in a good breakfast dish.
Ingredients: (make as many as you like!)
Fresh baguette (white or wheat)
Fig jelly or jam
Directions: Slice the baguette into 1 to 2 inch pieces and toast lightly.
Slice the figs into coins.
Smear goat cheese on each crostini and layer with the fresh, sliced figs.
Top with a dollop of jelly and serve.
I like this dish best for breakfast, but you could serve it anytime as a snack or appetizer. If you don’t like goat cheese, sub in any soft cheese you like. If you can’t find fig jam, try apricot or peach.
