Fig and Goat Cheese Bites
Looking for an easy, no-cook appetizer that everyone will love? Try these fresh figs topped with goat cheese, a drizzle of honey and a pinch of salt.
Fresh figs and goat cheese are one of those perfect flavor combinations that just about everyone enjoys.
To make this easy, no-cook appetizer, simply halve the figs and top them with a drizzle of honey and pinch of sea salt.
They make a great stand-alone appetizer or a nice addition to a cheese platter.
- 18 fresh black mission figs
- 3 ounces crumbled goat cheese (chèvre)
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Sea salt
- Trim the stems from the ends of the figs and halve them lengthwise. Press the tip of a teaspoon into the center of each fig half to make a slight depression to hold the goat cheese and arrange them on a serving tray.
- Combine the goat cheese and 1 teaspoon of the honey until blended. Mound a small amount of the mixture (about 1/2 teaspoon) in the center of each fig.
- Use a fork to drizzle a small amount of honey over the figs. The goal is to add just a touch of sweetness, so be conservative and don't get it on the sides of the figs or your guests will have sticky fingers!
- Top each fig with a tiny pinch of sea salt and serve.
Make ahead instructions: This appetizer can be made ahead and refrigerated, but it needs to be brought to room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.
