Fig & Chèvre Bites
A super simple fig appetizer that will impress even the most discerning of palates! This recipe states is serves two-four but sometimes it has been found to just be for one. That's right, a nicely chilled glass of sauvignon blanc complements the fresh figs and goat cheese so well, you might find yourself enjoying it as a light summer meal!
1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
2. Rinse each fig and pat dry.
3. Cut each fig (on the pointy side) in quarters, without cutting all the way through.
4. Stuff each fig with approximately 1/2 tsp of cheese. Place on baking sheet with cut end up.
5. Roast in oven for 10-15 minutes.
6. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with salt. Enjoy!
These simple fig bites can be quite sweet. I suggest playing around a bit with your honey and salt ratios until you find the level of sweetness that works best for your palate. By playing with some different honeys you can change the flavors of this dish ever so subtly.
I have recently begun experimenting with a variety of local honeys. Not only does each batch have a slightly different taste that can make a simple fig dish just plain delicious; but they are very good for your immune system as well.
As noted above, these bites make a tasty appetizer or dessert given their level of sweetness. Enjoy!Add to Favourites
