Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini #PotluckforChristy

Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini makes a great, easy and quick to put together snack or appetizer.

Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini I promise bringing you two fig recipes in a row was not planned, despite my rambling about them getting overshadowed by the great big pumpkin on Monday; sometimes things just end up the way they are.   

Speaking of things ending up in ways we don’t expect, today thanks to Robin from Simply Southern Baking, a bunch of us have gathered together for a virtual potluck for Christy Jordan of Southern Palate

Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini Back in July, Christy was in a horse back riding accident that left her with two broken legs and short term memory loss. She’s a trooper though and doing an amazing job with her recovery – just take a look at her latest adventure trying to pick up some chocolate and popsicle sticks to make these amazing Chocolate Caramel Apples.  A lesser person might give up because they could only walk so far and so slowly in their braces and with a cane but not Christy.  She was determined to go all the way and despite the pain and sweat that came along with it, Christy keeps on getting stronger. 

Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini For this potluck I wanted to make something simple, but full of flavor. The perfect dish for an unexpected visitor or to have with a glass of wine at the end of the day.  Fig season is fleeting, but these could absolutely be made with dried figs that have been reconstituted with hot water.

    Susan, thanks to you now I’m thinking about a nice glass of wine and your deliciously looking Roasted Fig and Ricotta Crostini. Some of my friends have been talking about having a wine testing get together and this are the perfect treat to bring along. Now, tell me, with which wine would you pare it with? Susan, I’m so happy that we got to be a part of this amazing virtual potluck for Christy, she deserves this and more. But, also because I got to meet you and other great food bloggers that I didn’t know about. Cheers to the beginning of a long lasting virtual friendship.

      Wanda, so nice to “meet” you too! Hmm. . .what wine? You know I’m thinking a nice fruity Chardonnay from California might go well with this. You don’t want something too robust that would take over the simple flavors of the ricotta. But I’m not exactly an expert on wine pairings! You should tweet Michael Green (@mgwine) for his opinion.

    What a sweet thing you guys are doing by throwing this potluck! Best wishes to Christy, that sounds like quite a crazy accident. And a perfect way to use up all the great figs available right now.

  10. Kristin @ Dizzy Busy and Hungry!

    You know what? I have never made anything with figs before! But I think I need to start! This recipe looks so GOOD, I really want to try it!

    So great getting to know you from the potluck. I will be following you on social media to stay in touch and see what else you come up with going forward! 😉

    Have a great day!

    I must admit, I’m not much of a fig fan, but I WANT to be. I love the flavor, but the texture of all of those figs gets me. On the other hand, I’m firmly in the pro crostini camp. I think I could get on board with these 😉

  12. Laura Dembowski

    It is so nice of you all to do this potluck! Christy sounds like an amazing woman and I wish her all the best! Life can certainly be very tough.

    I love figs and would love to try making something with them.
