Goat Cheese Fig Crostini

Jump to Recipe

Try goat cheese and fig crostini as appetizer in your next summer garden party.

I learned how to make this Goat Cheese Fig Crostini from my dear friend Joyce Wallace. She served this dish as an appetizer at one of her amazing summer garden dinner parties. Crostini is an Italian word that translates to “little crusts” and are an appetizer consisting of small slices of grilled or toasted bread accompanied by a variety of toppings. The toppings may include cheeses, meats, fruits and vegetables, or may be simply prepared brushed with olive oil and topped with herbs or a sauce.

If mother nature is on our side on the Eastern Shore in the month of August we get at least a few dozen fresh figs from the tree on our farm.

This simple recipe packs a mean punch. Your guests will revel with delight from this rare seasonal treat. I often serve this dish with lightly toasted walnuts.
