1/2 Photos of Fig Jam and Goat Cheese Crostini
Flavors of fall 'sage and figs' pair up with tangy goat cheese for an elegant appetizer that's a perfect pairing for a glass of bubbly. The toasts can be made up to a day ahead and stored at room temperature in an airtight container. The sage can also be prepared a day ahead, loosely wrapped in a paper towel, and stored in an airtight container. Fig jam can be purchased at high-end grocery stores. Quince jam, a.k.a. membrillo, would also be delicious here. Taken from CHOW.com

- 1Heat the oven to 400°F
- 2Cut the baguette on the bias into about 20 (1/2-inch-thick) slices and place on a baking sheet.
- 3Using 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, lightly brush each slice. Sprinkle with salt and bake until lightly toasted and crisp, about 8 minutes; let cool.
- 4Line a plate with paper towels and set aside.
- 5Heat the remaining olive oil in a small frying pan over medium-low heat. When the oil shimmers, gently place 2 to 3 sage leaves at a time into the hot oil until they darken in color and any bubbling subsides.
- 6Immediately remove the leaves with tongs or a slotted spoon and transfer to the paper-towel-lined plate.
- 7Repeat with remaining sage leaves; set aside.
- 8Gently spread 1 teaspoon of the goat cheese on each crostini, top with a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of the fig jam, and garnish with a fried sage leaf.
