Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the baguette slices on an ungreased, foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake the bread in the preheated oven until the bottoms are brown, about 5 minutes; flip and bake until crisp, 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon of ricotta on each slice of toasted bread. Place a few ribbons of basil on each, arrange a slice of fig on top, and drizzle the finished crostini with balsamic vinegar.

I recommend this to everyone. I just had a cocktail party for 45 people and everyone loved these. The basil leaf sliver added the perfect taste to this.

I agree with some others - this is rather bland. Maybe some cinnamon mixed into the ricotta would liven it up?? Any other suggestions welcome as I would like to see this idea work.
