Fig and Goat Cheese Appetizer

It’s true that we all studied abroad in Florence, Italy. It’s true that we all daydream about one day being back there – actually one day is more like now. And, it’s also true that Jessica gained a good 25 lb. in the 6 month time frame she studied abroad.

Let it be known that she doesn’t regret a single bite. While in Italy, what does one do? Enjoy the breathtaking sites, shop Gucci and Prada, and embrace the rich culture and history, of course. But for the ultimate experience, one also must eat and drink their way through the beautiful country. So, she did just that. She blames all the late night indulgences of pasta, wine, bread and cheese. We say, bring it on!

We’re talking cheese and bread today, so get a glass of vino ready and take note of our delicious and oh so easy appetizer.


  • Loaf of fresh Italian bread from the bakery
  • Olive oil
  • Fig Spread
  • Goat Cheese


  1. Slice the bread into thin pieces.
  2. Brush one side with olive oil.
  3. Set on a Cast Iron Grill Pan {with the lines} on medium high for a couple of minutes until you see the nice brown lines on the slice of bread.
  4. Add fig spread on top.
  5. Top with goat cheese on top of the fig spread. goat cheese and bread appetizer-fig-
