If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini

I had a lot of leftover fig pasted from the Fig Crumbles I made last week, and I definitely wasn't going to  let it go to waste. One use I found for it were these easy fig and goat cheese crostinis, which make for an easy appetizer. Usually when I make these, I use a fig compote made of chopped dry figs (1/2 cup), red wine (3/4 cup), granulated sugar or brown sugar (2 Tablespoons) , and a couple pinches of thyme, but I figured the fig paste was a good substitute since I had it on hand.

Ingredients (choose how much you need based on how many you would like to make/serve)
Log of Goat Cheese
Fig Compote or Fig Paste
Olive Oil

Slice baguette and brush both sides with olive oil. Toast bread on a grill pan over medium high heat (2-3 minutes each side) or for bake about 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees in the oven, turning half way through.

Once baguette slices are toasted, smear goat cheese onto crostini and top with fig compote or fig paste.
