Recipe: Fig and Onion Bruschetta

Fig and Onion Bruschetta

Not such a trendy appetizer… bruschetta actually dates back to the 15th century!


  • 2 tbsp Butter Olive Oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced very thinly
  • 2 tbsp Fig Balsamic Vinegar
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 French baguette, sliced in 1/2” rounds and lightly toasted
  • 1 cup fig jam


  1. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and sauté until softened, stirring occasionally…about 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce the heat to low…add the vinegar and stir for 2 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  5. Combine the cream cheese and blue cheese in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  6. Spread the cheese mixture on the baguette rounds.
  7. Top with a spoonful of jam and then a spoonful of the onion mixture.
