Grilled Cheese Toasts with Bacon and Figs
We like to serve these open-faced toasts as a quick supper with a green salad and a glass of wine. But you could just as easily use smaller pieces of bread, chop the bacon and make these as bite-sized hors d’oeuvres.
- Preheat the broiler.
- Stir together the fig preserves and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
- Spread the preserves over the bread and arrange on a broiler pan. Lay 2 slices of cheese over each slice of bread. Place under the broiler and broil until the cheese is melted and golden in spots.
- Remove the toasts from the broiler and transfer to plates. Top each toast with 2 slices of bacon and several fig slices. Serve at once.
