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