If you’ve got fresh figs available to you, try this easy, tasty Fig Crostini recipe. This is one of those fortuitous recipes where all the ingredients to make a fabulous fresh fig appetizer just happened to be in my house at the same time. You better believe I took advantage of that!
What Exactly IS Fig Crostini?
Sweet figs, tangy goat cheese, chopped pecans, and a drizzle of honey make these fig crostini appetizers the perfect two-bite treat to serve before dinner.

Fig, Goat Cheese, and Honey Crostini Appetizer Pairs Well With…
A nice crisp IPA is one of our favorites to enjoy with goat cheese and honey. The figs work nicely with the whole combination.
Reading up around the internet I found several sites recommend a nice merlot to go with goat cheese and honey. Also, mentioned? Champagne.
Need a refreshing non-alcoholic drink idea? Try one of the many variations of flavored sparkling waters available these days. Almost any fruity flavor will taste great with these.
Or Make Them For a Light Dessert
You can make these fig crostini for a light dessert too. Two or three on a plate are the perfect light dessert. Not too sweet, lightly savory, and served with after dinner coffee, make these a tasty little dessert.
What Else Works Well With Figs and Goat Cheese?
I think there are quite a few things you could sprinkle on top of the warm honey. Things like:
- chopped pistachio
- chopped black walnuts
- fresh arugula
- dark chocolate shavings
- cacao nibs
- freeze-dried fruit powders
Any number of little bits can be sprinkled on to subtlely change the flavors. Try a few different flavors to see which ones you like best!
Fresh Figs are a Treat in Alaska!
We don’t get them often! So when I see them or order them from our foodclub you can bet they are a treat for us. This little fig appetizer dish was our favorite way to enjoy that rare treat of fresh figs.
About That Cast Iron
This uses a 10 inch cast iron skillet. If you don’t have one try a bigger skillet and make them all at once. OR use a baking sheet, the cast iron makes them look fancy. OR grab a nice cast iron skillet because you’ll use it more than you think you would! I linked up to one in my recipe card if you’re interested.
Plus I’ve got a couple of great recipes that use a 10-inch skillet like this Blueberry Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping or these Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu Breasts
