Fig and Goat Cheese Bread

Posted on August 6, 2014

I Absolutely love this Fig and Goat Cheese Bread.

It’s simple to make and really adorable baked in tiny loaf pans.

It’s been a fun discovery for me over the summer to bake up bready creations with fun ingredients in tiny bread molds.

Figs and Goat Cheese are a combination that I find delicious.

This savory fig and goat cheese bread works well for appetizers and travel well for gatherings.

I’ve included a few tips when shopping for fresh figs. When you are at the store you will most likely see Black Mission and Brown Turkey figs.

Fresh figs are fragile so they will not be perfect.

What to look for: The fig’s stem should give a little when bent and the skin should have a slight wear to it. This indicates a full ripe flavorful fig.

What to Avoid: Avoid figs that are oozing, look shrunken, have milky liquid around the stem, or are over squishy. If the figs are in a container check the container for any signs of molding.

Plan on eating or using the figs within a day or two of buying them.

How to Store: They are best at room temperature in a well ventilated area. You can refrigerate fresh figs to last a little longer but note that it will lack a bit in flavor.
