Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto

 

This week might be one of the busiest week I’ve ever had. I have like 10 millions things to do, and only 4 days left before we leave for Sydney. It’s crazyyyy! I hope you’ll understand me and forgive me if I keep this post (very) short.

Those goat cheese stuffed figs wrapped in prosciutto are a fancy appetizer but also super simple to make.
I tried to use some leftovers mascarpone I had in my fridge and…nop, it didn’t work. The cheese melted and it tasted funny. I also tried with ricotta and that’s quite good! It’s definitively a good substitute if you don’t have some goat cheese on hand.
Make the most of the fig season! Try this delicious fig chutney, perfect with white meat and make sure to save some for the holidays, you won’t regret it! And coming up soon, a fig lamb tajine (aka a moroccan stew)!

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 6. Makes 12 figs

Serving Size: 2 figs

Ingredients

  • 12 fresh figs, not too ripe
  • 1/3 cup goat cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp thyme

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cut the figs crosswise from the top, halfway down the fruit. Stuff with goat cheese (about 1 1/2 tsp per fig). Do not over stuffed, it would be a bit sickly.

  5. Arrange figs on a baking dish and bake for about 10-12 minutes.

Notes

You can top your figs with toasted walnuts, it's delicious!

    Just found your beautiful website whilst looking for ideas for stuffed figs – made mine with caramelised orange balsamic instead of honey. A fabulous supper!
    Thanks for making the internet a better place :)

    I am going to try using bacon (par fry off before wrapping) a sprinkle of cinamon and drizzle of palm suger syrup instead of honey.
    Sounds good to me — will let yo know!

    My version!
    I par cooked bacon to replace the proscuito and drizled with palm sugar syrup with a drop of honey – baked for 10 min then topped with lightly fried wallnuts and shards of the toffee which had formed when baking– WOW not too sweet GREAT for A STARTER then later we had Thai fish/prawn cakes with a light dip sauce, nice for a Sat or Sun night for two with a bottle of sparkly
