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.

Ingredients:

6 whole figs, halved
olive oil
12 slices baguette
1/3 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
honey for drizzling

Directions:

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.

Tips:

*Don't overgrill the figs- they'll turn into mush & will be unusable- just grill them enough to soften them up.
