Prep and toast ciabatta

Start when cranberry sauce is finished cooking! While cranberry sauce cooks, strip rosemary leaves from stems, then finely chop. (NOTE: This chopped rosemary will also be used for the turkey.)Cut ciabatta into 1/4-inch slices. Add ciabatta slices, 1 tsp chopped rosemary and 1 tbsp oil to an unlined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.Toast in the top of the oven, flipping once halfway through, until golden-brown, 10-12 min.Arrange ciabatta on a serving dish. (TIP: Keep the baking sheet for toasting bread for the dressing.)

Prep and toast walnuts

Meanwhile, finely chop 1 package of chives.Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add walnuts to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on walnuts so they don't burn!) Remove from heat. (TIP: Keep the pan for toasting nuts for the veggie medley.)

Mix and form cheese

Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, goat cheese, chives, half the fig spread and 1/4 tsp pepper in a medium bowl. Using a rubber spatula, scrape cheese mixture into a log shape on a piece of parchment paper.Using the parchment paper, roll cheese mixture into smooth log about 2-in thick.

Finish and chill cheese log

Unwrap cheese log, leaving log in the middle of the parchment paper.Sprinkle walnuts over log, then roll log to coat on all sides in walnuts.Wrap log in parchment paper again, then twist ends of parchment paper.Transfer to the fridge and chill until firm, 30-40 min. (TIP: The longer the cheese log chills, the better!)

Finish and feast

Once chilled, unwrap cheese log, then transfer to the serving plate with ciabatta.Right before serving, add remaining fig spread and 1 tbsp water to a small microwavable bowl. Heat in the microwave until warmed through and liquid, 30 sec - 1 min. Drizzle warmed fig spread over cheese log.
