Fig and Basil Bites

May 22, 2011


A unique combination one might not ever dream up on their own, but someone did, and I’m thankful for it. These little gems would be a welcome addition to any hors d’oeuvres party any time of the year. These have been sitting in the ‘post’ box since Christmas time.

Fig & Basil Bites

In a small bowl mix together:

1 Tbsp Honey
6-8 ounces Goat Cheese at room temp
1 tsp Lemon Zest

Spread mixture thinly on:
2-4 Slices Raisin Bread
Top with
Chiffonade of Fresh Basil
On another
2-4 Slices of Raisin Bread
Spread thinly:
Fig Jam – I found mine in the Middle Eastern section of mygrocery store.

Top one slice of bread on top of the other slices of bread, just like a sandwich, toast under broiler or in a panini press or like a grilled cheese sandwich in a frying pan.  Cut diagonally in an X. I trimmed the crust off too, but you don’t have to.

    These look scrumptious! I’d like a few right now!
    Tell me what a chiffonade of basil is, please.

      Roll up a few leaves and slice them into thin strips.

      HI PATTY!

    Figs and goat cheese are a favorite! And with a touch of basil you can’t go wrong!

    Thinking of trying fig and basil ice cream….know it sounds
    weird, but I’ve got lots of both fresh. If I do make it, will report
    back on results.
