Ingredients

  • 1 thin baguette
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Homemade Fig Marmalade, or 1 (8.5-ounce) jar store-bought fig jam
  • 4 ounces Gorgonzola or Roquefort cheese, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler. Slice baguette in half lengthwise and place on a baking sheet cut-side up; drizzle cut sides with olive oil. Transfer baking sheet to broiler and broil until tops are toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and continue broiling until bottoms are toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Let bread cool to room temperature.

  2. Divide jam evenly between baguette halves and spread to cover. Top each half with cheese and serve.
