I stumbled upon this recipe while looking for another one, and it sounded so delightfully sinful that I had to share. This would make for a great little appetizer to bring along to a fancy soiree, dinner, wine party…what have you. This sounds as though it would be equally as delicious using puff pastry for bite sized morsels of goodness. The creator of this recipe had this to say about it…

“OH MY FREAKING GOD I WANT TO EAT THIS ALL DAY LONG. Heck, I would bathe in this if Katie let me. Mmmmmm delicious sweet, savory and buttery loofa.”

Followed by…

“I really want to eat this everyday until I have a heart attack.”

I am not sure who Katie is, but sounds perfectly normal to me…Enjoy!

Fig Spread, Pear & Brie Flatbread

A deliciously delightful combination of luscious fruit and tangy, creamy cheese that you will never want to stop eating.


  1. 2 Tbsp olive oil
  2. 10 figs, trimmed and cut into eighths
  3. 1/4 white or yellow onion, 1/4″ dice
  4. 2 pinches dried thyme
  5. juice of 1/2 lemon
  6. 1 pear cored, thinly sliced
  7. 1/2 lb brie, sliced (We used Fromager d’Affinois)
  8. BIG and CRUSTY bread
  9. salt to taste

  1. Heat olive oil in a small sauce pan on medium-low heat. Toss in your onions and go take a break; watch some TV, do some dishes, make fun of Rachel Ray, whatever makes you happy. Just stir them every 5 minutes or so.
  2. Once the onions are caramelized, about 16-20 minutes, add the figs, thyme, lemon juice and a pinch of salt, cover and repeat the exact same process again; stirring every 5 minutes while saying “Yumm-O!” in silly voices until the figs are also caramelized and the whole product looks like fig spread, approximately 20 minutes.
  3. Smear the resulting product on to some thick sliced crusty bread, top with sliced pears and brie and put it in the toaster oven for a few minutes until the brie gets melty.

You could try and get fancy and wrap these ingredients in puff pastry or phyllo dough for bite sized snacks. Go ahead and get crazy with ya bad self!
