With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, who wants to have to worry about making appetizers or meals that require a lot of work? Try this delicious Fig and Blue Cheese Bruschetta from The Pioneer Woman for a quick and easy appetizer that will satisfy any holiday guest.
Fig and Blue Cheese Bruschetta
- 1 whole Baguette, Sliced
- 4 tbsp. Butter
- 2 tbsp. Fig Spread Or Fig Preserves (or You Can Use Plum, Apricot, Etc)
- Blue Cheese, Cut Into Chunks
- Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Toast the baguette slices until golden and crisp. Allow to cool, then spread with a little fig spread/preserves. Top with blue cheese chunks. Sprinkle on basil.
Serve with a cold glass of wine! We paired this appetizer with a glass of our award-winning 2018 Medium Sweet Riesling. The stone fruit aromatics of this white variety and the light sweetness on the finish allows this wine to be perfect to enjoy before a meal with or without lighter cuisine.
Take a break from your holiday shopping by coming into our tasting room and enjoy a glass of your favorite Aurora Cellars wine. Before you head home, make sure to buy a few bottles of wine to complete your holiday meal!
