READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by CaliforniaJan

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!

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  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!
