Fig and Brie Bruschetta
Heaven on a platter! *assembly required
These Hors d'oeuvres are perfect for entertaining or even a little snack. Postino Winecafehttp://www.postinowinecafe.com/ is a restaurant in Phoenix that I absolutely LOVE! They have delicious bruschetta, panninis, salads, and wine. I fancy every bit of it but the the wine. My hubby got to be a part of the postino experience on my birthday. It was his first and his last visit. He called it 'chick food.' I guess he is more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy. So I now only go with girlfriends... which is perfectly fine because I am always down for a girls night out! I went out Friday night with the girls and had platter of various bruschetta but have been craving this particular one ever since.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Granny Smith Apples
Bread- I used a baguette here, but you can use an Italian loaf, artisan bread or even ciabatta. Whatever you fancy!
DIRECTIONS- (It's not rocket science)
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Slice your bread. I like thinner slices, like 1/2 an inch slice because they are easier to eat. Brush olive oil on both sides of the bread and toast for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
2. Pull out bread and put thin slices of brie on top. Put back in the oven for 2-3 minutes, just enough time for the cheese to melt a bit.
3. Pull out and spread the cheese out a bit. Spread fig spread on top of cheese. Top with thin slices of granny smith apples and enjoy a little piece of Heaven!
The fig spread can be made from scratch if you really want to complicate things!
I like things fresh so I'm sure it would taste better!
