Fig and Blue Cheese Hor's d'oeuvres

Fig and Blue Cheese Hor's d'oeuvres


  • 4 Effie's Oatcakes or Nutcakes, cut in half
  • 3 oz Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2-3 fresh figs, stemmed and sliced or Brennan's Fig Spread
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley or chervil or chives



This hors d'oeuvre would pair wonderfully with a berry-red wine, port or sherry. Or try serving them as a first course with a winter salad. Enjoy! If Figs aren't in season, Fig Spread can be substituted.


Pre-heat the broiler on high.

In a small bowl combine the blue cheese and heavy cream. Use a sturdy rubber spatula or small metal spoon to blend the cream into the cheese, making a smooth spread.

Place the oatcakes on a baking pan and top each one with some blue cheese spread. Top the cheese with 1-2 fig slices. Place the sheet pan under the broiler for 15-30 seconds. Use a metal tong to rotate the pan as needed, making sure the figs and cheese turn bubbly.

Top the fig hors d'oeuvres with the fresh chopped herbs and serve.
