A very special treat. Crispy, salty, sweet and unctuous. For a single person, I used small tortillas and my favorite blue cheese (Point Reyes). I crumbled the cheese over one tortilla and heated it in the microwave for about 15 seconds so it was easily spreadable. Since fresh figs are not in season, I used a couple of dried "white Turkish" figs. Very good but very sweet. I suspect I will enjoy this even more with fresh figs.
This dish was met with lots of "mmm"s and "oooh"s. The sweetness of the fig really compliments the saltiness of the meat and the richness of the blue cheese. The mozzarella bulks out the tortilla and gives it a very nice texture. I used a Gorgonzola for the cheese and a San Danielle for the prosciutto. I doubled the recipe, and everyone really enjoyed this as a gourmet "junk" food treat. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
