I have a confession to make. When I see certain ingredients in a recipe, I tend to run. Ingredients that I don’t know exactly where to find in the grocery store or ingredients that I don’t usually cook with can intimidate me. When I was asked to do a step-by-step how-to for the new Baked Goat Cheese Crostinis recipe that was developed by the Pillsbury® Kitchens, I was a little nervous. I looked at the list of ingredients, and a tiny bit of panic set in. But I am here to tell you that the fear was in vain. This recipe was absolutely delicious and came together with ease. No need to be intimidated…it is time to impress!
First, you need to cut up your roasted red peppers and figs. Here are a couple tips for working with these two ingredients. First, you can find roasted red peppers at your neighborhood dollar store. I am not kidding…and they are good! Second, dried figs are by the raisins in your grocery store. There are some in boxes and some in bags. Either will work, but you need to make sure to pull off the little stem before you coarsely chop them.
