Broiled Fig and Gorgonzola Finger Sandwiches
- 1 Loaf French bread, sliced into ¼ inch slices
- Olive oil
- 9 fresh figs, sliced in half
- Freshly ground pepper
- 18 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
- 1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350º. Brush both sides of the bread slices with olive oil and place on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes, turn the slices over and bake another 5 minutes or until toasted. Remove from the oven and cool. Preheat the broiler to high. Place a fig on half of the slices of toasted bread. Season with salt and pepper. Top with 1 ounce of the crumbled Gorgonzola and place on the baking sheet. Broil the fig and Gorgonzola sandwiches for 1 minute or just until the cheese melts. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with toasted walnuts. Top each sandwich with another slice of bread.
