1Guests need a nibble the minute they come into your house. Some haven’t eaten since early morning in anticipation of the feast. Nothing is quite as satisfying as crisp, crunchy, cheesy baguettes. Halve a skinny French loaf, cut it into 4-inch lengths, and toast until the cut sides are crisp. Add thin slices of sharp cheddar and toast again until the cheese melts. Spoon fig preserves and a thin slice of fresh fig onto each one.
