Are you aware of how delicious figs are?
I don’t know if you’ve tried my other fig appetizer—Fresh Fig, Micro Arugula, and Mascarpone Bruschetta—but it’s kind of the best thing, ever. Well, it was…until these crostinis came into my life. I don’t like to pat myself on the back too much, but, I kind of hit the nail on the head, here.
Don’t you just love when you find something that is oh-so-simple to make, but tastes like heaven? These use less than a handful of ingredients, come together in a snap, and will be one of the best things you will ever put in your mouth. Pair them with a glass of Pinot Noir and you will be in pure bliss.
If you think you won’t like these because you aren’t a fan of blue cheese, hold your tongue. My sister does not like blue cheese and she ate 4. There is something magical that happens with this particular combination of ingredients. It’s salty-sweet-savory nirvana. My mother has already decided that I’ll be making them at least 2 more times this week. I think these are just one of those things that you have to taste to believe.
