Fig, Bacon, and Honey-Goat Cheese Crostini
  • ⅔ cups dried figs, cut into thin slices length-wise (fresh, ripe figs work too)
  • 4 oz goat cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 baguette, cut into ¼-inch slices (Lightly toasted, if desired)
  • ½ cup chopped basil
  • 6-8 strips bacon, cooked until crisp (I bake mine in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes)
  1. In a small bowl, mix together goat cheese and honey until smooth and uniform.
  2. Slather honey-goat cheese mixture onto each slice of bread (Use as much or as little as you want per slice)
  3. Layer sliced figs over the honey-goat cheese mixture on each slice of bread.
  4. Crumble bacon on top of each piece of crostini.
  5. Sprinkle chopped basil on top.
  6. Enjoy, immediately!
