Goat Cheese And Fig Crostini With Basil And Balsamic Glaze



  • 1 baguette, sliced into rounds (or you can totally buy pre-toasted bread rounds or pre-made crostinis)
  • 1 package of spreadable goat cheese
  • 1 jar of fig jam
  • A few sprigs of basil, shredded or sliced into ribbons
  • Balsamic glaze (or balsamic and brown sugar to make your own)


In a large skillet or pan, toast the baguette rounds with a little olive oil on each side until just about golden brown. Let cool, then spread goat cheese on each round, followed by fig jam. Top with basil and your balsamic glaze.

Pro Tip: If you want to make your own balsamic glaze, mix 1 cup balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup brown sugar, then simmer for 20 minutes, or until the glaze is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
