Directions

  1. Combine goat cheese, breadcrumbs, mint and parsley in a small bowl.
  2. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Cut figs almost from top to bottom keeping them attached at the broad end.
  4. Make an indentation/hollow in each half with your thumb.
  5. Stuff each fig with approximately 1 teaspoons of the goat cheese mixture and squeeze very gently to close.
  6. Wrap a slice of pancetta around each fig, overlapping with each revolution-- don't wrap too snugly.
  7. Cover the figs with plastic wrap and refrigerate (up to 1 day) until ready to grill.
  8. Grill figs over a moderately hot fire to crisp the pancetta and warm the figs-- 8-10 minutes .
  9. Transfer to a serving platter-- drizzle honey and sprinkle the thyme over and serve.
