Fig and cheese bruschetta: delicious! Photo


Still looking for that impressive yet easy hors d’oeuvre for Easter?

Try this delicious bruschetta of seared fresh California black mission figs and your favorite cheese (Brie and blue cheese are particular favorites). A garnish of bacon is optional.

If you don’t have time to cook the figs, you can substitute fig jam, and use an optional slice of fresh fig as a garnish.

  • Fine granulated sugar
