TODAY is the second anniversary of this blog!!!! It is also my Moxie’s 5th birthday. Isn’t she a character? She is an amazing little rescue pup!
Now – as to crostini – they hardly require a recipe. You can top them with whatever you like & in whatever quantity you prefer. The title here says it all – Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini with Pistachios and Honey. Not a lot of mystery.
I want to say – just as an aside – that figs are almost IMPOSSIBLE to photograph poorly. They are the supermodels of the food porn world! Look at them! Gorgeous!
I used avocado honey that my friend Rose gave me – that she got from a co-worker who is a beekeeper. It is delicious!
So – without further ado – I give you Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini with Pistachios and Honey!!
Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini with Pistachios and Honey
Quantities are really up to you & the amount of folks you are feeding. I’d allot 2 or 3 per person.
Fresh figs – stemmed & quartered
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread some goat cheese on sliced baguette & arrange them on a cooking sheet. You might want to press some pistachios into the cheese now as it might be neater. Bake about 10 minutes or until the cheese softens & the bread begins to brown. Add pistachios – if you haven’t already – and top with fig quarters. Drizzle with honey & serve!
