Figs Stuffed with Goat Cheese

Figs Stuffed with Goat Cheese

Fresh figs are really hard to find. I’m sure if they were more accessible, I’d make them (and eat them!) a whole lot more than I do now. They’re one of those fruits that is almost like candy to eat, but so much better.

I made these for a Christmas party my husband threw for his work, and they were scarfed down pretty quickly. Some people had never even eaten a fresh fig before, so I was glad to introduce them to it. And while figs are fairly good to enjoy all on their own, they’re even better when you stuff ‘em with goat cheese, wrap prosciutto around them and then drizzle them with just a speck of honey. While people did like them, I still had plenty of leftovers. And needless to say, I didn’t mind that in the least.

Ingredients:

  • 10 – 15 figs $9.99
  • 1 cup goat cheese $5.99
  • 6 or 7 prosciutto slices, cut in half horizontally (you’ll need two slices for every fig) $7.99
  • 2 tablespoons honey $0.42

Total cost $24.39
Cost per fig. $1.63

Directions:

1.) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut each fig in half.

2.) Press about 1 tablespoon of goat cheese into the center of each fig. Take one piece (one half) of a slice of prosciutto and wrap it around the center of the fig, so some of the fig and most of the goat cheese is covered. As you finish wrapping the figs, place them onto the baking sheet in a single layer.

3.) When all of the figs have been stuffed and wrapped, place them into the oven for about 10 minutes, just until the edges of the prosciutto are starting to brown and curl.

4.) Remove the figs from the oven and while they are still warm drizzle them all with just a little bit of honey.

5.) Serve and enjoy!
