Saute

Ingredients

1/2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/4 cup
thinly sliced shallots (which replaced red onion)
5-6 Tbsp
fig jam, approximately (which replaced whole dried figs)
2 Tbsp
dark balsamic vinegar
4 oz
goat cheese or soft brie
16
crostini, crackers, thin slices of baguette or similar
arugula or mixed greens
fresh rosemary, parsley, basil (for garnish, if desired)

Step-By-Step

1Combine olive oil and shallots or red onion in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sauté until onions are coated and softening. If using dried whole figs, cut into 1/4" sliced and add them and the balsamic vinegar to the pan. Sauté 2–5 minutes until figs soften and are nicely coated. Remove from heat.
2Spread cheese on crostini or crackers to lightly cover and evenly distribute. Top with one or two small pieces arugula or mixed greens. Top with fig/onion mixture or fig jam then the sauteed shallots (and a garnish of fresh herbs).
