Happy Holidays from Olive Gourmet!!

Fig & Blue Cheese Crostini
1 French baguette, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
2 Tbsp. Olive Gourmet Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 oz. goat cheese
4 oz. cream cheese
2 oz. Blue or Gorgonzola cheese
2 Tbsp. fresh oregano, finely chopped
1/2 Cup Olive Gourmet Fig Balsamic

Lightly brush baguette slices with olive oil and place in single layer on cookie sheet Bake in oven at 350 degrees until lightly toasted, about 6-8 minutes. In the bowl of a food processor, combine cheeses until smooth and spread on crostini. Sprinkle with chopped oregano. Reduce the fig balsamic in a saucepan: heat vinegar until just boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, stirring constantly to avoid burning, about 5-8 minutes. Reduction will thicken as it cools so don't overdo. Drizzle over cheese topped crostini and serve.
