Honey Roasted Figs are  my  recipe  of the day with the blogging group Foodie Extravaganza. We join  up at the beginning of the month to post about food holidays and events. This month it is National Honey Month.

For my post,  I decided to prepare some simple roasted  figs topped with honey and a couple of other ingredients that I could pile on to some  rainforest crackers  with a schmear of  soft  goat cheese.

A Perfect Flavor Balance

The flavors all balance together between the softness of the roasted fruit and chevre  and the crunchiness of the crackers and fig seeds and the sweetness of   the honey  contrasted against the tangy saltiness of the cheese.

I  love piling things on crackers  with  goat cheese as you have seen me do before (and will  again,  no doubt). If you need a good cracker from scratch, try my  recipe for Gourmet Fruit and Nut Crisps.

They are quite  similar  to the rainforest crackers you can buy.

  1. Figs and goat cheese are one of my favorite combos, Sue. Yours look fabulous! I don’t know what’s wrong with my local grocery stores but I haven’t seen a single Texas or Louisiana fig this year, only black mission figs from California. They are lovely but not the same!
