  • 8

    5x3x½-inch slices crusty country-style bread

  • Olive oil

  • 1

    8-ounce piece ripe Teleme cheese or Havarti cheese, cut into 8 slices

  • 8

    ripe fresh figs, stemmed, quartered lengthwise

  • Dark full-flavored honey (such as forest honey)


Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Brush both sides of bread with oil. Place bread slices directly on 1 side of grill rack; place sheet of foil large enough to hold bread slices on other side of grill rack. Grill bread until grill marks appear on bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn bread slices over and place bread, grilled side down, on foil. Place 1 cheese slice atop each bread slice; close barbecue and grill bread until cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Transfer bread to work surface; cut each slice into 4 pieces. Top each piece with fig slice. Drizzle lightly with honey and sprinkle lightly with freshly ground black pepper. Transfer to platter and serve. bon appetit june 2010 Nutritional Information One piece contains the following (Analysis includes forest honey.): Calories (kcal) 80.1 %Calories from Fat 44.1 Fat (g) 3.9 Saturated Fat (g) 1.9 Cholesterol (mg) 6.3 Carbohydrates (g) 8.8 Dietary Fiber (g) 0.5 Total Sugars (g) 4.9 Net Carbs (g) 8.2 Protein (g) 1.
