The great thing about fig and cheese toast is that there are endless possibilities when it comes to toppings and combinations. You can go sweet or savory, depending on your mood.
You can use any type of figs you like, but fresh figs are the best. We like to use a soft cheese like goat cheese or cream cheese. However, you can also use a harder cheese like cheddar or Parmesan. For the bread, try a rustic sourdough bread or a whole grain option that contains fiber. You could even replace the bread with sliced sweet potatoes! If you don’t have figs, you can use other fruits like apricots or peaches.
Toppings for fig toast are endless, but some of our favorites include crumbled turkey bacon, walnuts or honey. If you want something a little lighter, you can top your fig toast with Greek yogurt or ricotta cheese. Fig and Gorgonzola cheese is a classic combination that is both sweet and savory.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, why not try fig and blue cheese toast? The sharpness of the blue cheese is offset by the sweetness of the figs, resulting in a truly unique flavor experience.
Fig jam is also a great topping for fig toast. You can even try making fig chutney. The possibilities are endless! Just make sure to enjoy your fig toast while it’s fresh and warm out of the oven.
So next time you’re looking for a quick and easy snack, give fig and cheese toast a try. With so many possibilities, you’re sure to find a combination that you’ll love.
