Bleu Cheese Fig Toasts
- Blue Cheese (wedge)
- Figs (dried)
- French Bread (loaf)
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!
