  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 8x4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In medium bowl, stir together muffin mix, buttermilk, melted butter and egg just until moistened (batter will be lumpy). Spoon batter into pan.
  • 2
    Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Cut cornbread into 16 (1/2-inch) slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until toasted.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook shallots in oil 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in figs and vinegar. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook about 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in pepper and chopped rosemary. Cover to keep warm.
  • 5
    To serve, spread goat cheese on warm cornbread toasts. Top evenly with fig mixture. Garnish with rosemary sprigs.

Expert Tips

  • The goat cheese and balsamic vinegar help offset the sweetness of the cornbread and figs, and balance the flavor of this holiday appetizer.
  • Toasted baguette slices would also work well in place of the baked cornbread and would save time too.
