DIRECTIONS

  • Note: I have prepared this appetizer several times using small pieces of brie or crumbled Gorgonzola to replace the goat cheese. Sweet and tangy flavours blend well.
  • Combine figs and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring often until liquid is absorbed, place fig mixture into a small bowl.
  • Stir in olives, vinegar, oil, thyme and pepper, set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Top each toasted muffin half with cheese and 1 tablespoon of fig tapenade.
  • Place muffin halves on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • Cut each baked muffin in half or quarters for bite-sized pieces.
  • If you use baguette slices, arrange on a baking sheet, broil until lightly toasted on one side only; then spread untoasted side with tapenade and top with cheese.
  • Garnish with thyme sprigs. Serve and enjoy!
  • On the day of the party, assemble the "mini pizzas" up to an hour in advance, cover and leave at room temperature until ready to bake.
