A Perfect Pairing: Fig Toasts with Honey & Scamorza

Fig Toasts with Honey & Scamorza

Every once in a while, someone does something so simple, yet so perfect, we have to take a moment.  Our east-coast foodie friend Kelley (who heads up her blog Lavender & Cream) paired figs, honey and a bold cheese to create the perfect toast.  Her recipe makes our Scamorza shine, so naturally we wanted to share it with you.  Enjoy!

Serves: 3-5


1 whole wheat baguette

10-15 figs, sliced into rounds the thickness of about two quarters

2.5 Tsp olive oil

3 garlic cloves, slices in half

5 Tsp balsamic vinegar

2.5 ounces Ferndale Farmstead Scamorza, sliced

2.5 ounces of prosciutto, sliced into bite-sized pieces

5 Tsp honey


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the baguette into one inch or so pieces and brush with olive oil. Place them in the oven until they are golden brown.

While the toasts are browning, slice figs and prosciutto.

When the toasts are done, and while still warm, rub them with the halved garlic cloves.

Brush the toasts with the balsamic, then place the cheese onto each toast (about a quarter ounce per toast).

Top the cheese with bite sized pieces of prosciutto (so you don’t pull it out from under the figs when taking a bite) and the fig slices.  Finally, drizzle the honey on the toasts and serve.
