Cheese bread with fig and onion jam

Hello and welcome all. Today in CRB Tech Reviews I write about a fig-onion jam and cheese bread.

French people are certainly very good at making baked goods.

Cheese bread with fig and onion jam

Many are people are very fond of fig and camembert cheese bread and even mine. I personally love the classic mix of creamy, pungent cheese mixed with sweet and fruity fig preserve. But also love in addition caramelized onions and a few nuts for extra volume and crunchiness.

The colors alone are tempting and the flavors will take anyone who’s been to France and it cafes abound.

This cheese bread makes a beautiful snack to serve when cut into sticks. It can also be served as part of a meal with a simple salad, next to a pot-au-feu or paired with a classic French frisee salad.

Cheese bread with fig and onion jamInstructions

  1. Place a large pan over medium heat then add oil and onion.
  2. Cook for about 15 minutes, until onions turn golden brown, soft and juicy.
  3. Lightly toast your bread in a toaster with the lowest setting or in a oven. The bread should be little crispy.
  4. Lay a sheet of tin foil in a tray and add bread slices.
  5. Layer the onions to cover the bread surface with a spoon.
  6. Add about two to three pieces of camembert cheese on top, centered. When the cheese melts, it will expand.
  7. Top with nuts and using a knife and fingers, scatter small dollops of fig jam, enough for having a taste per bite.
  8. Broil in the oven for 4 minutes.
  9. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

So I think while the write up itself gives a feel how yummy this recipe would appear. So try at home this weekend. Why weekend? Well in a relaxing mood you can do experiments with new recipes or old ones in a new style. If during a try something goes wrong, you can always have time and mood to renew the process or try something different. I often perform experiments on Fridays and Saturdays.
