boyfriend bruschetta

My friend Kristina gave me a recipe for “boyfriend chicken” a few weeks back. She told me it’s called that because it’s her “go-to” recipe for impressing new boyfriends. I think that’s adorable. Between this, and all of the recipes entitled “boyfriend bait”  floating around on Pinterest these days, I decided to come up with my own.

This is totally what I’d make to impress a new beau, LOL… or, in my case, my hubby of 18 years. We enjoyed this with a glass of delicious Cabernet. It’s the perfect Friday night or weekend treat when you want to let loose a little and indulge.

serves 6 (3 bruchetta each)

1 long, fresh, crusty baguette

6 to 8 oz. goat cheese (montrachet)

1 large head oven roasted garlic, cloves removed from skins

fig jam or mango chutney

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

fresh thyme leaves for garnish

Slice bread and toast or grill (if you wish.) Top with goat cheese, then some of the garlic cloves (mooshed), a little fig jam or chutney, a little sprinkle of sea salt, freshly ground pepper and thyme leaves.

    My daughter is coming home from school at the end of this week and we are going to make goat cheese. I think this will be one of the ways we use that cheese. Sounds so good and the photos make it look good also! I hope I can find some fig jam. Thanks again for sharing!

      Hi Patricia! Making goat cheese sounds like so much fun! 🙂 wish I was there to help you taste it. hee hee… I used a really good fig jam, called Dalmatia Fig Spread, that I purchased at a local gourmet shop. It was about $8 for the jar. If you can’t find that, and you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, I recommend the Fig Butter they sell at $2.29 a jar. 🙂 Hope that helps! enjoy, and thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Well I just broke down & ordered some of the fig spread. I found it for $6 which I was okay with but the shipping got me $8. Yowsers! $14 for fig jam I hope I like it.
