Bruschetta with Fig Jam Gorgonzola

Four ingredients are all you need to make this savory appetizer.  This is a simple recipe and no chef skills are required. 

Trust me, bruschetta topped with a fig and cheese is amazingly tasty!

In Italy, while we were vacationing, I noticed Italians love mayonnaise as their preferred condiment.  Much to my surprise, even more than ketchup, cocktail sauce, mustard, or any other condiment.

They use mayonnaise with all appetizers, including French fries and shrimp cocktail.  Therefore, I thought why not try it with this bruschetta.

Fig jams and cheese are a quick and easy way to add depth of flavor to any bruschetta, sandwich, or even Italian panini’s.  And fig jam goes really well with cheese. 

If you have never tasted the dynamite duo, well then you just have to try it!

Here in Charleston, we love to entertain and eating on the patio for some “Al fresco” dining.  The weather here is spectacular and reminds me of those wonderful summers we spent in Italy.  

It’s one of the reasons why I love Charleston so much.

A quick appetizer to served with a glass of wine is always a total success!  And they are pretty easy to assemble once you toast the bread.

Everyone enjoyed these and we hope you will too.

 

Ingredients Needed for Bruschetta with Fig Jam, Gorgonzola Cheese and Mayo:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 jar of fig jam or preserves ( I used black mission fig jam)

  • 4 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese

  • 1 French baguette

  • 2 Tbsp. butter

DIRECTIONS:

Thinly slice the baguette on the diagonal to make about 12 to 14 pieces, discard the ends.

Place a thin slice of butter on each side of the slices.

In a skillet on medium heat, toast a few slices at a time for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy.

 

Remove and transfer to a platter. Set aside.

Spread each slice with a thin layer of mayonnaise, and then spread each again with fig jam.
