Fig Gorgonzola and Honey Tartine

fig tartines | Fig and Pickles

I found this recipe on Tartelette (one of my all time favorite food blogs) and had to give it a try.  I am a huge fan of figs, obviously, and had just been to France where they were absolutely divine.

I don’t have a ton of notes on this recipe.  I’m usually not a huge fan of blue cheeses, but there is not a ton of it on each slice and the flavors all balance so well that I really don’t mind it.  These were delicious at room temp, so I recommend serving them that way and not hot out of the oven.  Figs can hold on to heat a bit, so it’s easier eating at room temp as well.  Also, Tartelette recommends this gluten-free french bread recipe that I have yet to try, but it has amazing reviews.

Enjoy!  And definitely go check out Tartelette for some yummy recipes.
