Simply Gourmet – Blue Cheese, Fig and Honey Toasts…

These are perfect for entertaining and go lovely with a glass of red wine. So if you are looking for some simple gourmet appetizers for easy entertaining – try this recipe!

Bleu Cheese Fig Toasts

  • Blue Cheese (wedge)
  • Figs (dried)
  • French Bread (loaf)
  • Honey
  • Butter

At your local store purchase a fresh loaf of french bread along with some quality blue cheese.

In a pan heat up about a tablespoon or so of butter. Thinly slice your french bread and place in the pan on medium heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes then flip.

In the meantime, slice your dried figs.

I love it – Sun Maid actually carries dried figs now. You can find them next to the other dried fruits. 😉 Just pull a few out and slice long ways. With your leftover figs you can put them in a salad, make a fancy flatbread, or why not make a fig bread pudding? That might be my next recipe. 🙂

Next, slice your blue cheese. Place the golden brown toasts on a platter and add a little bit of blue cheese to each one. Then add your fig slices…

And drizzle a swirl of honey over top! 🙂

That was easy 😉

Enjoy this recipe with your friends and family. Happy Entertaining!
