I don't even get to read the word "Toast" in this title before I already want to make this recipe. There's something about the combination of creamy ricotta cheese, fresh figs and sweet luxurious honey that makes me think of heaven.

6 to 8
thick-sliced multigrain artisan bread
freshly ground black pepper
chopped toasted hazelnuts
fresh thyme leaves
Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.
Remove the stems from the figs and cut the figs into quarters. Place the figs on one side of a 10-inch by 15-inch sheet pan. Drizzle the melted butter on top and toss to evenly coat the figs with the butter.
Place the slices of bread on the other half of the baking sheet and generously brush with olive oil. Sprinkle some sea salt over everything and bake for 15 minutes, until the figs are soft but not mushy and the bread is toasted (remember to flip the toast over halfway through the cooking time).
While the figs are roasting, combine the ricotta cheese and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season lightly with sea salt.
Assemble the toasts by first spreading the ricotta cheese evenly over each slice of toasted bread. Top with the roasted figs and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle the toasted hazelnuts and fresh thyme leaves on top and serve.
