Fresh Figs stuffed with Blue Cheese Wrapped in Prosciutto

Getting ready for the weekend?  The wine is chilled.  We have a spot for you.


The figs are ripe on our tree.  We picked a few to share this appetizer with you, while you enjoy your wine.


Fresh Figs stuffed with Blue Cheese Wrapped in Prosciutto
Serves 6

Ingredients:
6 fresh figs
1/4 cup good quality blue cheese
3-4 prosciutto (thinly sliced, cut lengthwise)
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions:
Turn the oven to broil.

Cut the figs in half, and place a piece of the blue cheese on each half.  Wrap the prosciutto around each fig half, covering the cheese.  The ends of the prosciutto should overlap.

Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes until the prosciutto begins to color and crisp.  Remove.  Season with sea salt and pepper.  Serve warm.

Enjoy!

I'm so envious of your fresh-from-the-tree figs! This looks like a delicious appetizer and perfect wine choice for me too ;)

Simple and delicious. Beautiful combination of flavours. YUM!

Man this looks good! One of my fave appetizers of all times, I learned how to make this years ago when I worked for my fave boss of all times Carl, a New Yorker expat restaurateur living in Sydney. The only difference is we drizzled honey over them as well! The photos look great Velva!

Sue said...

I'm definitely trying these...we just made dates stuffed with manchego and wrapped in prosciutto and they were great. This sounds like the perfect summer dinner to me, and I am so jealous that you have a fig tree!

Cooking Creation said...

Oh, this flavor combination sounds amazing!

I have pie tins and strips of plastic bags hanging from the branches of our fig trees in hopes that the birds will leave me a few. If I'm successful, this is definitely on the list!
