If there is one cheese that goes perfectly with figs, it is goat cheese! This Fig and Goat Cheese Toast is ideal for breakfast or as an aperitif canapés.

Goat cheese and figs, the perfect combo!

Goat cheese is a cheese that generally goes well with fruit as for example in my recipe for Goat Cheese and Apple Puff Pastry. Fresh figs with their sweet and elegant taste matche deliciously with the fresh goat cheese.

This recipe for Fresh Goat Cheese and Fig Tartine is one of the easiest ways to combine these two ingredients.

Choosing your ingredients

This toast recipe is very simple, however, it is important to choose the right ingredients.

  • Bread: I chose a classic country bread. As the fig and fresh goat cheese are rather mild in taste, I recommend a relatively neutral bread easy to toast.
  • Fig: I chose French figs, intense in taste. The best way to select your figs is to taste them first. Ripe, they melt in the mouth and are pleasantly sweet. There are also green figs, perfect for this recipe as well.
  • Fresh goat cheese: I chose a fresh goat cheese that spreads easily.
  • Honey: You can choose any type of honey according to your taste.
  • Fresh thyme: I recommend using fresh thyme rather than dried when not cooking it as in this recipe. Remove the hard stems and keep only the leaves. It’s a bit tedious but worth it because the fresh thyme gives such a nice note to this toast!

Frequently Asked Questions

As with every blog post, here are some tips for substituting ingredients in this recipe:

  • Fig: You can replace the fig with other fruits such as nectarines, apricots or pears. You can also roast the figs in the oven with honey and thyme before placing them on the toast.
  • Fresh goat cheese: If you are not too fond of goat cheese, you can replace it with cream cheese made from cow’s milk.
  • Honey: You can replace the honey with a drizzle of agave syrup or olive oil for a less sweet version.
  • Fresh thyme: You can replace fresh thyme with fesh oregano or basil.

How long does this toast keep?

Only a few hours! It is better to eat them fresh because the fig will lose its beautiful red color with time.
