Today is World Bread Day!

In honor of World Bread Day we have been busy preparing one of our favorite recipes, Black Mission Fig Challah Bread and Goat Cheese Melts


This classic mini sandwich gives adults the excuse to be a kid again! The creamy yet tangy flavor of goat cheese is a wonderful compliment to the sweetness of our Black Mission Fig Challah Bread, creating a deliciously wonderful and gooey appetizer. Your guests will be licking their fingers and waiting by the kitchen door for the next round! Best of all they are super easy to prepare.





Makes 8 servings
1 Loaf of Black Mission Fig Challah – slice into 1/4 inch thick slices
18 Ounces Goat Cheese – Softened
2 Large Vidalia Onions – Sliced Thin
5 Tablespoons Basil – Chopped Finely
5 Tablespoons Thyme – Chopped Finely
6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
Salt and Pepper to Taste

On a medium heat add 2 tablespoons of butter to heated pan. Once the butter begins to foam add the sliced onions, season with salt and pepper and cook on a medium heat for 8 – 10 minutes, or until desired likeness. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl combine the goat cheese, sautéed onions and herbs. Mix until incorporated.

Pre-Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Meanwhile assemble the sandwiches – generously spread the goat cheese mixture on 4 slices of bread and place the remaining bread on top and spread with butter.

Place the sandwiches on the heated skillet, making sure you place them buttered-side down. Butter the remaining other side while cooking.

Cook until cheese is slightly melted and bread is browned (approx 4 minutes). Then flip the sandwich and continue to cook until cheese is thoroughly melted and sandwich is golden brown.

Cut into bite size pieces for yummy and fun appetizers!
