We are in full fig mode these days, with the abundance of fruit peaking in Fig Forest, and the kitchen hard at work making batch upon batch of our amazing fig jam! We've whipped up this fun and easy recipe, perfect for a Fall cocktail party.
Total time: 30 minutes
1 small baguette, cut on the diagonal into 24 slices
3 tablespoons olive oil
5 ounces goat cheese
1/3 cup Park Winters fig jam
24 basil leaves (if leaves are large, tear in half)
6 fresh figs, quartered (we used Black Mission, but any varietal will do)
Olive oil for finish
Salt & pepper to taste
Heat broiler. Brush both sides of baguette slices with oil; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side; set toasts aside.
Dividing evenly, spread each toast with goat cheese, and top with fig jam. Place one basil leaf, and one fig quarter on top.
Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
