fig and gorgonzola crostini.
So the other night my husband and some friends were getting together for a guys night, and I was tasked with sending him off with some beer and an appetizer. I bet you would thoughtfully support your loved one’s extracurricular activities with an appropriate manly dish…meatloaf sliders, 7 layer dip, hot wings…
Yep, I sent fig and gorgonzola crostinis. I had been meaning to try a new appetizer recipe forever and here was my chance!
Except a funny thing happened…he came home with an empty plate.
So I served them again the next night at our neighborhood’s Happy Hour.
Welcome to a new favorite throw-together appetizer. What’s great is there are so many other things you can do with gorgonzola! And I’m dreaming of the fig jam with fresh burrata or on a pizza with goat cheese and arugula. Yum.
Fig and Gorgonzola Crostini
