Grilled Fig Bruschetta
Yield: 12 appetizers
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 5 min
This is a delicious and easy appetizer to whip up when you've already got the grill going for dinner.
6 whole figs, halved
12 slices baguette
1/3 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
honey for drizzling
1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
2. String figs onto skewers and drizzle with olive oil.
3. Place fig skewers and slices of baguette on the grill. Grill just a couple of minutes on each side, until figs are lightly softened and bread obtains grill marks.
4. Remove both from grill. Slide the grilled figs onto a cutting board and gently chop them. Divide the chopped figs among the slices of bread. Sprinkle with a few crumbles of gorgonzola & give a light drizzle of honey. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
*Don't overgrill the figs- they'll turn into mush & will be unusable- just grill them enough to soften them up.
