Fig, Goat Cheese, and Serrano Ham Flatbreads

One of my wife’s favorite things is the Dalmatian fig spread you can buy in stores. She loves it on crackers with cheese. I wanted to come up with an easy dinner that could somehow incorporate this favorite ingredient, and I think I’ve done it.

Fig, Goat cheese, and Sarano ham flatbread are the perfect weeknight dinner.

These flatbreads will appeal to a wide audience with homemade fig spread, goat cheese, and Serrano ham. Really, what’s there not to love!

Ingredients:

  • 20 dried figs
  • 1-2 cups semisweet white wine
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 9 slices Serrano ham (believe me, it’s worth the little splurge)
  • 6 one-ounce pieces of goat cheese (I love one called Aussie Magic from Australia, but you could use the marinated/herbed goat cheese of your choice)
  • 5 flatbreads  (I prefer the plain naan bread from Trader Joe’s)

Directions:

  • Place the figs and wine in a bowl and let them sit for five to six hours to plump up.
  • Preheat the oven (and a pizza stone) to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove the figs from the wine (discard the wine) and place in a food processor with the honey. Process them until they form a paste.
  • Evenly spread the paste over the flat breads.
  • Evenly place the Serrano  ham and crumble the goat cheese on top.
  • Cook the flatbread in the oven for 10 minutes, or until crispy.
  • Let stand for five minutes, cut, and enjoy!
