Fig and gorgonzola crostini
If I see figs at the store I have to get them, provided they are ripe of course. Figs are one of the fruits that do not continue to ripen once it has been picked. If it is not ripe when you buy it it will not ripen in your kitchen. The figs should be soft to the touch but not mushy and should not ooze the syrupy juices. Here is a simple but so good crostini you can serve as an appetizer or make it for yourself as a snack. The bread can be grilled or not. Figs and gorgonzola is a marriage made in heaven. Try it, you’d like it. Even Mikey likes it and he hates everything:).
I posted another fig and gorgonzola recipe here. see image below.
Slices of fresh baguette
Gorgonzola cheese, room temperature
Ripe figs, sliced
Honey, liquid pourable
Micro greens for garnish
You can grill the bread or leave it fresh. To grill it place the slices of baguette on a baking sheet and cook at 400℉ or broil briefly on each side being careful not to burn it.
Place a piece of gorgonzola on each baguette slice, top with a slice of fig and drizzle with a little honey.
Garnish with a few micro green leaves.
