My husband and I made these a few years ago for Christmas Dinner, to be served before our traditional lamb. We and our guests ate until we were full. This is really simple and easy to do. My daughter helped me make the ones pictured below. This can be served as an appetizer or a snack. Please note, that if you like bread, sweet fig preserves, and strong cheeses, you might overeat. If you don't like strong cheeses, you could try Brie instead.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the French Baguette on a diagonal using the bread knife. Pour olive oil into a small bowl. Use the silicone brush to brush olive oil on the bread.

Spoon out more or less to your taste of the fig preserves.

Then, place in the oven to bake 10 - 15 minutes. Keep an eye on this because you don't want to burn your bread. Serve and enjoy! Makes 10 - 14 slices (depending on how you sliced bread).
