Uncle Bob's recipe Inspired me to make these. I made his Grilled Fresh Figs on Rosemary Skewers and they were so good. I just wanted to kick it up a bit!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Strip the leaves from the bottom of the rosemary stems, leaving about 1 1/2 inches of leaves at the tip.
  2. Place the stems in a bowl and add cold water to cover; soak for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Skewer fig halves crosswise on each rosemary stem.
  4. Arrange the skewers on a plate with the cut sides of the figs facing up.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together honey and lemon juice.
  6. Brush the honey/lemon mixture over the cut side of the figs.
  7. Preheat the broiler to high.
  8. Broil the figs cut side up until they are lightly browned and softened, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  9. Top with cheese and place back under broiler for 1 minute.
  10. Serve on the skewers while still hot.

Fabulous! My husband grew up with figs, but always had them either fresh or as homemade preserves. I made these for him, not being a huge fan of figs myself, and was shocked at how much I liked them as well! I've made them twice now, and plan to do a large batch for a dinner party this weekend. To simplify, I broiled them without the stalks, just with snipped rosemary. Thank you!

This is a summer staple for us when our figs ripen. Simple to make and simply delicious! The blend of flavors is perfect. I infuse the honey with the rosemary leaves. Some family members prefer the figs without the cheese on top. For me, the whole package makes for the perfect amuse bouche.
