Love hosting family & friends during the Holiday season? These easy and delicious Fig & Goat Cheese bite-sized appetizers will be a sure shot hit during your Holiday parties. Just 4 ingredients and you have a crowd-pleasing appetizer that will be gone in no time!
But despite it being really delicious, it was also pricey. Ever since then, I had planned on recreating that recipe at home.
Now don’t get me wrong, but these Fig & Goat Cheese Mini appetizers turned out better than the one I had tried at that restaurant and approximately at a fraction of the cost than what I had paid for.
They will literally take 15 minutes to assemble and are so delicious that you will want to make them for every party that you host 😀
They also make a great hors-d’oeuvre for any potluck party that you are planning to attend.
I mean, look how cute they look. Who wouldn’t want to devour them? Warning: They will be gone in no time. So you better make sure you have plenty for your guests 🙂
All you need are four ingredients Goat Cheese, mini phyllo shells (I used the frozen ones) and Fig Preserves. For a final touch, I roughly crushed some pistachios and drizzled them on top for an even festive look.
For this recipe, I used Joan of Arc® Goat Cheese Log and filled them in mini phyllo cups. I then scooped Fig preserves on it to give it some sweetness.
Joan of Arc® Goat Cheese comes in various flavors. I used the Fresh Fig Goat cheese log which is a scrumptious pairing of mild and tangy, snow-white Goat Cheese with the sweet flavor of figs.
This soft Goat Cheese has a pleasantly fresh aftertaste which not only tastes amazing in appetizers like these but also tastes great on cheese plates or even desserts!
- Joan of Arc® Goat Cheese log - 1 4 oz. packet
- Mini Frozen Phyllo Shells - 15
- Fig Preserves - 1/2 cup
- Pistachios - 8-10 roughly crushed/ chopped
- Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Thaw your mini frozen phyllo cups for about 10 minutes. Fill the phyllo shells with about a tbsp of Goat cheese in each cup.
- Place it in the oven for 10 minutes or until the goat cheese slightly melts.
- Remove from oven and top each cup with a tsp of Fig preserves.
- Finish the dish by adding crushed pistachios (optional step)
Since the Fig preserves that I used were already pretty sweet, I did not add any other sweetener like honey.
You can even use fresh figs in this recipe but if you do, you may need to drizzle a little bit of honey on it to give it an added sweetness.
I hope you give this recipe a try during the upcoming holiday season. And the next time you are planning to entertain guests, try using Goat cheese in your dishes. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.
