Fresh or dried, figs lend a sublime sweetness to all sorts of dishes, from easy apps to healthful desserts to interesting entrées.
Crostini with Gorgonzola, Caramelized Onions, and Fig Jam
This recipe brings together big flavors―the tart sweetness of figs, the savory sweetness of onions, and the pungent kick of Gorgonzola cheese―in a balanced way. Try this suggestion from eatwelltx to make assembly easier: "I put the toasted bread with the cheese back in the oven (turned off but still warm) to melt the gorgonzola before adding the fig jam and onions, and this made layering the jam and onions over the cheese much easier. Absolutely delicious."
