Grilled Fresh Figs and Blue Cheese

Total Time

I bought fresh figs at the farmer's market and the grower shared this simple and delicious fig preparation with me. We had it for a Father's Day dinner appetizer and it is fantastic!


  1. Cut the figs in half lengthwise and put a tablespoon of blue cheese on top of each half. Top this mixture with a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.
  2. Put figs on a warm grill and cook until the cheese melts and the figs are heated through.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

Great as written warm, but also very good non-cooked (raw). It is such a versatile concept, I also tried them like other reviewers 1) with prosciutto (instead of bacon) broiled and 2) with a sweetened balsamic reduction. All variations were super!

Delicious and simple. Whole foods had fresh, organic figs on sale, blue cheese on sale and French bread. It was very simple to make and I would make this again. I grilled the fig pieces until they had sear marks on them which really gave them a nice flavor. Everything tasted very nice together and the flavor was deep. Thanks for the recipe.

What an explosion of taste..!!! I followed the recipe almost exept for the balsamic vinigar but just because l didnt have any at the moment...instead l used sherry vinigar. Also added a dash of white peper....ohhh sooo beautifull they looked!! I even ran upstairs to get the camera and my husband said he wanted more for supper also. sorry l have to go now because lm off to the supper market to get more ingredients for another batch! This deserves more then five stars dont let the ingredients scare you supper easy and very elegante too...keep up the good work!
