Ricotta and Fig Crostini

Post image for Ricotta and Fig Crostini

We had a baby shower here at work this week, and I made these crostini as a contribution to the array of sweet treats we had to celebrate. Normally, when I make them at home, they’re delicious. This time around I made them the night before, and then stuck them in the fridge at work until we surprised the mom to be. By the time they were served I think that the bread got a bit soggy from sitting. So learn from my mistake, and if you whip them up, do so closer to when they will actually be eaten. They’re incredibly easy to make, and make a great hors d’oeuvre for friends. They’ll fall in love as soon as you put this mixture of sweet, nutty, cheesyness in front of them.

Ingredients:

Black Mission Figs – cut in half

Chopped Walnuts

Low Fat Ricotta Cheese

Whole Wheat Baguette – toasted with a bit of olive oil and sliced thin

Honey

I love figs and honey. Great way to break up the sweetness with the cheese. Yum! I just made a sweet but savory ravioli. Check it out!
