Fig and Ricotta Crostini Recipe

  • 1 French baguette, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 12 fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
  • 8 black mission figs, cut in quarters
  • 1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the baguette slices on an ungreased, foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake the bread in the preheated oven until the bottoms are brown, about 5 minutes; flip and bake until crisp, 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon of ricotta on each slice of toasted bread. Place a few ribbons of basil on each, arrange a slice of fig on top, and drizzle the finished crostini with balsamic vinegar.
