I had baked figs at a restaurant a few years back, and they were absolutely delicious. They were so good that I went to the market the next day to buy figs and try to figure out how to make them. I love making these figs when we have guests over. They are so easy to make, and ooze yumminess.
Here's what you'll need:
This serves 4
10-12 medium to large fresh figs
5-6 slices of prosciutto
crumbled bleu cheese (I use crumbled because it's easier to stuff the figs with and less of a mess)
Preheat oven to 375F. Cut stems off of figs, and then slice each fig halfway down the middle creating a little pocket. Do not cut through the fig. You need to have the pocket to put the cheese in. Put approx 1/2 tsp of bleu cheese in each fig. Cut each slice of prosciutto in half, making 10-12 small slices of prosciutto. Wrap one slice around each fig, and place in a baking dish. Drizzle the figs with honey, and put in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool for a minute and then drizzle with a little more honey and serve on a platter. Enjoy!
