Fig-and-Blue Cheese Bruschetta

Prep time 15 mins
Broil time 4 mins
Bake time 10 mins
Yield Makes 12 appetizer servings
This is one of Jill's most requested holiday recipes--and we can see why.

Ingredients

  • 36 (1/4-inch-thick) French baguette slices
  • 1 (3-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup fig preserves or jam

How to Make It

  1. Broil French baguette slices on a baking sheet 3 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted. Remove baking sheet, and reduce oven temperature to 350°.

  2. Stir together cream cheese and blue cheese in a small bowl until well blended. Spread a heaping 1/2 tsp. cream cheese mixture onto each baguette slice; top each with a rounded 1/2 tsp. fig preserves.

  3. Bake at 350° on middle rack for 8 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  4. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Braswell's Fig Preserves.
