Grilled Bruschetta with Teleme, Honey, and Figs
- 8 5x3x1/2-inch slices crusty country-style bread
- 1 8-ounce piece ripe Teleme cheese or Havarti cheese, cut into 8 slices
- 8 ripe fresh figs, stemmed, quartered lengthwise
- Dark full-flavored honey (such as forest honey)
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Brush both sides of bread with oil. Place bread slices directly on 1 side of grill rack; place sheet of foil large enough to hold bread slices on other side of grill rack. Grill bread until grill marks appear on bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn bread slices over and place bread, grilled side down, on foil. Place 1 cheese slice atop each bread slice; close barbecue and grill bread until cheese melts, about 3 minutes.
Transfer bread to work surface; cut each slice into 4 pieces. Top each piece with fig slice. Drizzle lightly with honey and sprinkle lightly with freshly ground black pepper. Transfer to platter and serve.
